about

CMC 028

"Though a brash rock ‘n’ roll album at heart, Trying resounds with maturity and a serious knowledge of both space and sense. Even in its heaviest moments, Trying doesn’t thrash with static and anthemic yelps about cheap beer. Rather, it takes cues from those that first embraced the youthful fuzz — Modest Mouse, Pavement, Built to Spill — while still remaining fresh. It attempts and succeeds, far beyond the jagged edges of its slumber-punk peers. Trying is a fluid debut, spellbinding in that way a great story has you holding steadfast to every last word." — Consequence Of Sound

"The coming-of-age disillusionment bottled up here has more recently been expressed via the bedroom synth constructions of Youth Lagoon or Neon Indian, but Spook Houses approach it with window-blasting indie-rock guitar that more closely recalls Modest Mouse, Weezer, or more recent descendants like Yuck, Japandroids, or Jersey's own Titus Andronicus." — Spin
