[MP3] Wanderhouse – “Sugar”

Wanderhouse - Sugar

we could be a secret or the real thing

If you’ve been SXSWing it hard like me then you’ll appreciate a bit of a delicate touch on this hump day. Wanderhouse is back with a second slice of haunting ghost pop that hangs like the hangover fog in your head, pulsing through every once in a while to let you know you are still alive.



Cover songs are still my favorite way for emerging bands to put their own sound on a hit song and get easy attention. However 2012 was for some reason a slow year for cover songs.

[MP3] Wanderhouse – “Lights” (Ellie Goulding Cover)

and so i tell myself that i’ll be strong

♫ Wanderhouse – LIGHTS (Ellie Goulding Cover)

Ellie Goulding’s voice has always been her biggest ally and her overproduction her biggest foe. Here we get a hyper minimal cover of “Lights” laid under the gorgeous vocals of Wanderhouse’s Marie Moreshead. It’s beautiful, haunting, and better than anything Ellie’s has ever done. (except when she does the covering) Props to producing partner Doctor Rosen Rosen for knowing when to reign it in.

[MP3] Wanderhouse – “Use Me Up”

satellite rounding the moon, i’m still dust covered, waiting for you

♫ Wanderhouse – Use Me Up

  • Who:  Marie Moreshead & Doctor Rosen Rosen
  • What: Delicate spook pop, like The xx, XOV
  • Where: Los Angeles + Facebook
  • When: Just this one track so far.
  • Why: Doctor Rosen Rosen continues his domination by collaboration with new project Wanderhouse. He reigns in the infection beats and lets the negative space do the talking. Well, that and the crystalline voice of Marie Moreshead. Filled with tension, sex, and passion it’s wonderful teaser for hopefully more to come soon.
