House of Not
The Walkabout of A. Nexter Niode — Part 1: Off The Path
Freakstreet Productions

If you blended the musical stylings of Pink Floyd, the Middle Eastern/classic rock of The Tea Party and the vocals of Robbie Robertson, you’d end up with something new, exciting and with substance. Enter House of Not.

The band’s first album, The Walkabout of A. Nexter Niode - Part 1: Off The Path is characterized by solid riffs, tasteful vocals and expert songwriting. The record’s opening track is evidence of good things to come; it’s filled with spacey, layered keyboards, a pumping rhythm section and crunching guitar chords.

For the most part, House of Not keeps up the pace with excellent production; the vocals are rich and the guitarist screams talent. However, not all sounds fare well; the synthesized drums lack the depth in the rest of the instruments.

—Dave Curto
