NYC Artists on the rise: House of Blondes play Spike Hill on July 08

NYC Artists on the rise: House of Blondes play Spike Hill on July 08

Here come House of Blondes. A groove-based synth trio, the band owes a heavy debt to ambient purveyor Brian Eno. Singer John Blonde especially sounds like the innovator from 'Here Come the Warm Jets' in the slow build of 'Do It Yourself (Landscape).'

As I understand it, Eno's ambient music works equally well when played in the background of a room as it does when closely payed attention to. This is the spirit behind tracks like 'Come Running'and 'Supermoon' (streaming below). These are songs that exist in their own universe of synth-generated noise and persistent drum machines that take on a life of their own as they evolve and develop over the space of over 9 minutes in some cases ('Love 2 B Looped'). A band that doesn't fit in with conventional pop formats, the time it takes to discover their soaring soundscapes is well worth the wait. See the group play this Sunday at Spike Hill at 7:30 pm with Photoreal. - Mike Levine
