The whisky soaked vocals of Liam Palmer sit comfortably amongst the classic sounding rhythms of Grass House, a group of notherners who understand what makes good music, they offer a great sanctuary for those seeking respite from the prolific twee concoctions. They rank Joe Meek, Jonathan Richman, Captain Beefheart and Lou Reed amongst their gurus and their latest self-released single ‘The Boredom Rose’ b/w ‘Caught Green’ is a fitting tribute. With a touch of southern gothic crossed Americana they spice it up with Palmers quirky poetic lyrics which are impossible to ignore and leave you wanting more. The infectious chorus on ‘The Boredom Rose’ includes the unmistakable guest vocals of Cold Specks’ Al Spx, another fine creative talent. Stick them on your list of bands to watch out for!
Grass House are Liam Palmer, Steven Dove, Ross Hall and Nicholas Jones. Grass House have previously self-released two singles, ‘A Cradle, A Short Breath’ and ‘Faun’/’The Breeze’ in 2011.
