Editorial Reviews

"I feel like these are the best songs I've written to date," says DAVE HAUSE of his solo debut. "I really had an incredible time making the record with the EMPTY BOTTLES BAND (Hause's group of friends and backing band), so it'll be really fun to get that effort into people's hands." Hause, who cut his teeth in the punk world as a member of PAINT IT BLACK and vocalist/guitarist of THE LOVED ONES, has recorded a rock album with no genre restrictions and limitations that draws from singer/songwriters such as Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst. While writing the last two Loved Ones releases (2008's Build & Burn and 2009's Distractions), Hause recalls "the songs I was writing at the time didn't really fit [The Loved Ones style] and seemed to be pulling in a different direction, so I figured I would see that through. When songs happen quickly and easily you just kind of have to ride the wave, and before I knew it I had a record's worth of good tunes that don't fully fit the Loved Ones paradigm. I think fans of my songwriting will definitely get what's going on and will be happy to hear it." Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by PETE STEINKOPF (of THE BOUNCING SOULS), Hause and the Empty Bottles Band recorded drums, bass, mandolin, pedal steel and some guitars at BRIAN MCTERMAN's Salad Days studio in Baltimore, while the remaining guitars, organ, keyboard and percussion were recorded at Little Eden Studios in Asbury Park, NJ. While fans have lived with acoustic, stripped down demo versions of his solo material for over a year, Hause affirms "the versions on the album are the full deal, the way the song is supposed to sound all fleshed out, like it was in my head originally." Cuts such as the uplifting "C'mon Kid" and the somber "Melanin" take on a new life with the help of Hause's backing band, while fan favorite "Pray For Tucson" is still an acoustic number made even more beautiful with the assistance of a pedal steel guitar.

Not a bad song on this solo record from the lead singer of The Loved Ones. Like my idols Ben Harper and Mike Ness, Dave Hause's music has so much soul and feeling that made me fall in love with music in the first place.

I bought this cd after reading a review for best of 2011. There is a good reason it made the list, it is that good. Just buy it you won't be disappointed.

The Dave Hause vinyl matched the description perfectly. I am very happy with it and pass on the good word. The only thing is I wish the CD came in a hard case instead of the paper one.

Hey, I'm middle aged but I feel younger.

I would describe this as a cross between social-distortion and mumford and sons.
I prefer SD.
This is good music though. I like almost every song, the only song I don't like is the quicker tempo song second from the end.
My 4 yr old son's favorite song is on this cd, "C'mon kid" I love hearing him sing it, I love singing it. Buy this.
