Houses/Teen Daze "Bikes"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Vancouver haze-pop specialist Teen Daze operates in a shroud of mystery, so it makes sense that he would keep similarly shadowy company. Enter his sonically similar internet pal Houses, who calls Chicago home and is apparently part of the Lefse artist roster. Houses is a bit moodier than his neighbor from the North, and that comes through on "Bikes," a relatively mellow number awash in drawn-out synths and lo-fi hum. It's a bit like a couple of dudes taking a stab at recreating the Cocteau Twins, but through a '90s emo-pop filter and solely working on laptops. Wait a minute, that sounds horrible. Oh well, we like the song. Let's go with that. (via Altered Zones)
