Spook Houses, “American”

Alec Petty

Spook Houses do some jamming.

We've all been there: “I'm drunk and I feel like shit.” When Spook Houses' lyrics stumble out of their nauseous and pained vocals, it's clear they want to make songs that tell it like it is. “American”, the first song released in preparation of their 12-inch The Trying LP, envisions the glory, shame, and idiocy that comes with youth. The song begins with chugging rhythms and sleep-deprived guitar squealing that makes an uneasy blanket for lyrics that talk about cherishing the “quiet moments”. The song soon crumbles and turns into a raucous, rattling, and liberating anthem. As it pumps and flows, “American,” envisions a different American dream: one that is full of poor decisions, stupidity, and loneliness. “American” comes to a triumphant close, sounding like a hurricane ripping through an already dilapidated house-party. By embellishing their songs with their feelings of regret and anger, Spook Houses become an endearing and truthful outfit.

You can stream “American” below. The Trying LP is out August 14 on Evil Weevil Records.
