Memoryhouse

For a band that didn't set out to be a band, Memoryhouse sure act and sound like one these days. The Toronto duo began as an artsy-fartsy, multimedia sound-and-photography project. But over the past couple of years, they started playing the songs that would make up their recently released debut album, The Slideshow Effect, developing a voice onstage that recalls dream-pop groups like Beach House. Their new songs aren't quite as panoramic as the material found on their independently released 2010 EP The Years. In fact, the album's title refers to the photographic technique of zooming and panning to animate still images. “It’s not enough to live your life through photographs,” deadpans singer Denise Nouvion on the hazy “Punctum,” undermining the band’s MO. Throughout The Slideshow Effect, Memoryhouse trade texture for vocals that just skim the surface, glimmering in the forefront and on top of song structures that dip and bob. With Village Bicycle. 8:30 p.m. Tickets: $12. – Michael Tkach
