Band Name Memoryhouse. Album Name The Slideshow Effect. Labels Sub Pop Records. Members owning this album1. 1. Little Expressionless Animals. 2. The Kids Were Wrong.

The Slideshow Effect, Memoryhouse's full-length follow up to 2011's The Years EP, finds the band heading toward a new clarity in composition and sound; a more organic direction for artists who are, in their own words, transitioning from a "bedroom recording project" into a fully realized band. They half-seriously refer to their new sound as "Taylor Swift with Built to Spill as her backing band.

Not just because the group has incorporated film and filmic visuals into their music since the beginning, but because they've zoomed in on a few key elements of their sound

The Slideshow Effect, on the other hand, feels rushed and unfinished in some respects. At full length, the holes in Memoryhouse’s indie sound appear in greater clarity. In all, this is an album that you might want to really like, but ultimately you’ll probably feel a bit cold and aloof at the general lack of variance in the band’s sound. With The Slideshow Effect, and its half-charm and half-flaws, you really have to wonder if Memoryhouse, alas, might be little more than a one-trick pony.
