Twins Who Fence – Other Houses (reviewed by Marcus Kittridge)

A lot of artists are writing and singing about moving or travelling these days. Other Houses are another example of this. There is a whiff of the rolling stone or the unsettled nomadic minstrel about this recording.

It doesn’t really have a place. That’s probably the point.

Even the stark brevity that characterises each song, demonstrates a metaphoric unfinished journeying feel to the work.

Maybe it’s a sign of the times. It could be that nobody knows where they are or where they want to be right now. Not unique to musical artists but very zeitgeist in feel.

I’m not going to attempt to describe this 4 track EP using genres or musical references or suggestions of influence.

It is good though and the four pieces span a surprisingly wide oeuvre. Go spend some dollars on this succinct piece of vinyl. I think it will sit well in most collections.
