Caught the second track performed last night at Great Scott by Memoryhouse, an Ontario-based lo-fi dream-pop duo who probably don't have an opinion on the Bruins drafting Tyler Seguin with a pick that should have belonged to the Maple Leafs. Good for them! The show kicked off Memoryhouse's 21-date stateside tour with Long Island's Twin Sister who were also Flipcam'd last night, with video posted during their set.
Big night in Central Square last evening. Let's go straight to the video.
MOUNTAIN MAN, a trio of three young women who met at Bennington and were recently named our pick for best new band from Vermont, were up first. Mountain Man have two different modes: when they're accompanied by guitar, they're tapped into a vein of spooky Americana that can be haunting, beautiful, and transfixing.
