HOUSE OF STAIRS
HOUSE OF STAIRS
Inspired by the illusionary MC Escher, House of Stairs dissects harmony, rhythm and poetry to weave intense, deceptive and and often vulnerable aural tapestries. Since summer 2014, the trio-sometimes-quartet House of Stairs has been careening through genres to discover their own metric trip hop in Phoenix, AZ. Phoenix New Times notes them as “One of the Hardest Working Bands in Phoenix,” relating their sound to “the ambient textures of Kid A-era Radiohead, while Pyle’s vocals most evoke Beth Gibbons of Portishead.”Although they’re often found in one of a variety of disparate venues around Phoenix, this band has also been spotted at venues in Southern California, New Mexico, and Colorado. Their debut EP “Step One” released in 2015 and, after much work and preparation, are releasing their upcoming full-length album “Scuba” at this show alongside special featured guest performers.

Holly Pyle – vocals, Garrison Jones – keys, Stephen Avalos – drums, Shea Marshall – bass clarinet.

House of Stairs is a jazz-based collective that draw from funk, soul and pop influences to create a distinct progressive soundscape. Inspired by the visual innovations of M.C. Escher, House of Stairs explore multi-faceted interactions between harmony, meter and lyrics that are both compelling and imaginative.
THE HILL IN MIND
THE HILL IN MIND
The Hill in Mind is an eclectic indie band based out of Phoenix, Arizona. A strong emphasis on storytelling makes their music seem cinematic with many surprising twists and turns. Their debut full length album Thimble, Needle, and Thread is due in 2015

All university trained, the gentlemen behind The Hill in Mind are some of the most technical musicians in The Valley of The Sun. But behind every song is a deeply emotional narrative obscured in abstraction and absurdity, “Their lyrical content is slightly strange”, says Mitchell Hillman of Sounds Around Town.

The Phoenix New Times called The Hill in Mind, “Delightfully weird but also unequivocally poppy… music that goes in a new direction on every song.” Thimble, Needle and Thread will be just that; weird, emotional, well crafted and full of unexpected surprises.
