NOW PLAYING: Mist, ‘House’

The Artist/Album: Mist, House (Spectrum Spools, 2011)

A Short Review: The fourth release from John Elliott’s new vanity label is a side project sojourn with Radio People’s Sam Goldberg. Best experienced as a maroon-flavored double LP, House justifies its hefty import-only price tag with a multi-tiered suite of torrential drone tones, saw-toothed synth waves, and passages that actually warrant using the word “epic” with a straight face. Kinda like Elliott’s everyday role in Emeralds, only a little more fluorescent and fluid around the edges.
