Memoryhouse - "Sleep Patterns" [2010]

When they first appeared, Memoryhouse were lumped into chillwave and lo-fi categorizations, but after hearing the rerecorded The Years, it’s clear that neither of these associations fit the band. On the new version of the EP, singer Denise Nouvion’s voice floats along with a soft-but-powerful Mazzy Star-like lilt, with the higher fidelity of the new recordings benefiting her vocal delivery above all else. The soundscapes created by band-mate Evan Abeele also sound more crisp and present, with swaths of gauzy synthesizers and strings blending together beautifully.
