As the House… by This Piano Plays Itself (February 6, 2011)
As the House… comes on strong. Somewhere between My Bloody Valentine and M83 (I know, a strange combo) there are hints of dream pop within this epic rock album. Perfectly clean, This Piano Plays Itself has topped their genre and left us with an earful reminiscent of The Besnard Lakes. The songs flutter by, changing often and reprising subtly. As the House… is a worthy opponent for the summer weather here in New York City, hot as hell.
