THE BABIES
Release NEW ALBUM Our House On The Hill on 12th November
 
LISTEN TO Moonlight Mile

 
 
After releasing a slew of releases and rarities on both Shrimper and New Images, The Babies second album Our House On The Hill is their Woodsist Records debut and the first with new bassist, Brian Schleyer.
 
 
 
The Babies formed in Brooklyn in 2009 and feature Kevin Morby, Cassie Ramone, Justin Sullivan and Brian Schleyer. Originally  a side-project for Kevin and Cassie to trade song ideas and play house parties, the band has slowly grown into a full time affair, having done several stateside and European tours all the while writing new material, both in their home of Brooklyn and during a two-month sojourn in Los Angeles.
 
In February 2012, the band swapped their usual environs of Brooklyn's Rear House recording studio and spent two weeks in Los Angeles working with Producer Rob Barbato (Darker My Love, The Fall, Cass McCombs). The increased time and focus allowed them to explore musical directions only hinted at on their first album. Thus, Our House On The Hill features hushed dirges, melancholic traveling odes and squealing rave-ups, all made cohesive by Kevin and Cassie's captivating songwriting and lyrical themes. Organ, piano, saxophone and even strings play a supporting role in enhancing the aural atmosphere, which finds the band finally realizing a sound that can be called their own. Simple yet thoughtful; familiar yet haunting. Sweet but somber. 
 
"The set opener, "Alligator," is conversational in tone and acts to disarm the hardened listener with its pop confection and curve ball time change signatures on a check of solid Gang of Four gold. "Yo, I dig your hair, I gotta tell you about these holes in my pants, I would rather not hold yer hand. You get the drift."
 
Cassie evokes Anna Karina if she were in The Shangri-La's instead of Godard films in "See the Country" and then married  throughout the entire record are those otherworldly harmonized "oohs" & "aahs" by Kevin & Cassie that'll make the stubble on your spine take notice if you are still one of them folks in need of oxygen to breathe. The switchblade knives & butterfly stitches that paint the heartache and conflict throughout this long player will sharpen you for your next lovelorn argument, stumbling bar brawl between you & a reflection of your 17 year old self in the face of a tinfoil plated locket or for the working stiffs, that 3am Saturday drive home from the bad side of the tracks back to the sad side.  
 
Put the needle on the flip and throw that break up layer of tears away: we got a ride to catch to that house on the hill." - Dennis Callaci
