Guelph, Ontario’s Memoryhouse bring to mind early-90s elements of shoegaze and shimmering pop akin to Cocteau Twins-like atmospherics. Muted and flat singing actually work well and seamlessly with the phased guitars and swirling textures. If one were to imagine a Memory Tapes and Grouper collaboration, this would be the ticket.
