Fabulous Dates is the second full-length from Other Houses, aka Morgan Enos of Hollow Sunshine and Hheaven.
Affectionately referred to by its creator as « my punk album« ,Dates is a hurled cherry bomb of glorious songwriting. Both extremes of Other Houses‘ mid-fi sound are taken deeper and further, with baroque harpsichords and strings a la « Sgt. Pepper’s » and « Smile » careening headlong into jagged noise.
It’s a beautiful mess, one which betrays the young, prolific Enos as a student of rock and roll and a songwriting force to be reckoned with.
