Genre-defying, Handy-nominated explorer of Americana, Blues, and any other roots music style that strikes his fancy, Lemhouse has a distinctly contemporary songwriting voice filtering the emotion of Hank Williams Sr. through the attitude of Tom Waits.
THE SCHUMANN FREQUENCIES
Melodic fuzz-laden indie brilliance that will leave you swerving to inspired tunes and staring at your laces with a smile. Fine products of Chicago, Maine, and Oregon vintage underground roots that are bound to spark nostalgia.
Hiss' "Forever Alone" examines the dilemma of a lovesick Medusa with haunting guitar effects during the verse, à la early Pixies, then buckles into a '70s chorus brimming with spot-on harmonies. "Safe Word," an S&M fantasy tune from Purr, is a busy swing number bustling with peppy drums, jazzy guitars, and trumpets. On both songs, the band showcases their technical dexterity, which is one of Bubble Cats' more immediately notable attributes.
"I just like playing badass shit," says Riggs. "Back to not being perceived as a joke band, you walk this line. I don't want people to be depressed. I want to play fun music for people to listen to." -Ryan J. Prado at Portland Mercury
