Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Home Video's 'No Certain Night Or Morning' has a lilting charm that is apparent from the off - as opening track 'Sleep Sweet' trickles into view. Brimming with deceptively simple sequencers and creaky sampling techniques, Home Video have managed to get real warmth and charm from their equipment that leaks into their entire sound.

About the Artist

It is five in the morning and still dark outside. Your eyes flutter and open heavily. You see a disembodied blue glow pulsating on the ceiling. You have no idea where you are, but you know you are alone. The only sound you hear is the hiss of a nearby radiator, but in the movie version of your life this moment would be punctuated by the music of Home Video.

The first Home Video song came to them in the dead of winter, the blizzard of 2003. As the piling snow erased the landscape outside his window, David huddled over the warm vibrations of an analog synthesizer creating the simple loop that first inspired their minimalist sound. The fear and anxiety of New York's atmosphere at the time had eaten its way onto the pages of Collin's tattered notebooks and became their confessional style of lyrics. Underlined by a thumping, bass-rich beat, the pairing of the two worked well and the song evolved into "Melon," the first Home Video song created and the closing track on the album. Inspired by their new philosophy, other songs quickly followed and the band sent out demos.

Originally discovered by Warp Records, the label released Home Video's first two EPs in 2004, both packaged in sleeves illustrated by Collin's dark, Gorey-esque drawings. That You Might, a 10" single, immediately picked up considerable attention in Britain from BBC Radio 1 and the NME, while the five song Citizen EP earned the band a feature in Rolling Stone.

As electronic-rock producers and performers, they record everything themselves, then adapt it live into a full on rock show with live drums and hypnotic visual projections. After sharing a bill in London at the start of Home Video's 2004 European tour, Blonde Redhead were so impressed that they invited the band to support them for three weeks of shows in North America. They have also opened for such diverse acts as Pinback, Colder, Radio 4, and His Name is Alive.

Surrounded by the trend-infested-quick-high of the New York music scene, Home Video are slow-burning pop that will invade your dreams and memories. The full-length debut album, No Certain Night or Morning, is released October 3rd, 2006 on Defend Music.

Much versatility here.

It's like listening to a very fragile and broken person recounting the things they've seen.

"Wow.. what was that ?"I am startled by a sound I didn't hear in the cd the 15 times I played it before. All these electronic sounds, harmonic voices and rhythmic guitars dance into your ears in waves and weaves of morphing, kaleidoscopic texture. And then, humorously...there are the robot guns..in Superluminal and That You Might. As for lyrics, I like to sing Gas Tank out loud with it's funky syncopation. Sleep Sweet and Penguin are romantic, which is refreshing after the monotone and militant Melon. Pidpunk is the new anthem of the under 18 crowd chomping at the bit. We is enigmatic and comforting in a strange sort of way. Dialogue Box is pretty dark and disarming once you read the words. Confession suddenly sheds it's smooth skin to become a rock song, replete with distortion. Much versatility here. Home Video are showing a breadth of talent and originality that were only hinted at in Citizen EP. Don't hesitate to buy this, it gets better and better every time you listen to it.

This is one of those albums that sticks with me. I started listening to these guys during medical school when I really needed something to get me through the days. The music speaks of being in a different place and having to adapt to a new environment. I listen to this when I'm sad, when I'm happy, and when I'm in between. It's perfect for studying, chilling, driving, interpretive dancing...whatever. As a semi-professional musician myself, I can really tell that this duo has some classical training. Listen to it, and get their new album, too.

These guys are sheer genius and simply one of the best things to come out of south Louisiana in a LONG, LONG time (even if they did migrate to warmer reception in New York). That migration probably serves as the basis for most of the record, as the songs carry a thick air of feeling distant and relocated. Nowhere is the idea of moving to NYC presented better than in closing track "Melon;" the gripping, deadpan delivery of carnage and death can't help but conjure up images of watching the 9/11 attacks. That's not to say that the album is by any means political or willing to beat listeners over the head with patriotism, but it gives you a real grasp of the emotional depth that can come from such minimalistic delivery. Another highlight, "Superliminal" can't help but stand out with its thundering bass drums and an opening line like 'Suddenly, my life is in my hands, and I'm choking it blue in the face." The album is at equal points morbid and beautiful. It's like listening to a very fragile and broken person recounting the things they've seen. While the description I've given may sound more fitting for a metal album, I promise there's nothing abrassive here; just quiet, intriguing electronics with very thought-provoking lyrics. Buy it. Love it. Digest it. After that, go find the new EP and enjoy even further evolution from these two.

Recommended for fans of: Moby, Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps, Joy Division, and The Cure

I can't even describe how unique the is band's sound is. If you like even one of their tracks then buy this album. Every bit of it is A solid vocal treat and one of my favorite bands of the genre. Hope they make more soon
