Hour House, Music-Video
Melbourne’s Hour House is comprised of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna. Previously the two spent time in long-running experimental sextet Castings as well as both moonlighting in the excellent Painted Jesus Brown. Hour House are adept at crafting eerie vignettes, tales of tattered wallpaper and unsettlingly stained carpet. Door hinges creak, the gate won’t stay shut, a broken tap gushes water. Footsteps walk towards a door that leads nowhere. Disembodied vocals weave between shuffling sample loops. Their forthcoming LP, Chiltern, is due imminently on UK imprint, Penultimate Press.
