SpiceHouse from New York

Artist History



Influenced by the unique stylings of musicians as diverse as Ornette Coleman, the Grateful Dead, Brian Eno, and Jefferson Airplane, SpiceHouse is a foray into world beats, acid and traditional jazz forms, and jammed-out trip hop grooves, filtered through the aural prism of Barbarian Lovers and Smoke Ring Days, the band's previous rock and folk-rock incarnations. Citing the works of groundbreaking artists from the avant-garde jazz scene of the 1950s to modern day electronica pioneers, SpiceHouse has quickly become a favorite of downloaders. Stand-out performances by R&B/funk musician John Scarpulla (John Hiatt, B.B. King, Robert Cray, Hall and Oates) on alto and soprano sax accent SpiceHouse's studio work. The band's sound blurs the boundaries between radio-friendly rock and extended improvisational explorations. From upbeat polyrhythmic syncopations to meandering, mystical soundscapes, SpiceHouse mixes music from many eras and styles, from ancient ecclesiastical modes to twelve tone atonal music to modern ambient music and various world and electronic grooves, the latter a focal point of their newest side project, Sinfonia Electronique.

"Mosaic" Reviewed by RadioIndy.com!
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 29 Jun 2009 07:30 PM

SpiceHouse’s latest album, “Mosaic,” a 20 song 2-CD set of multi-textured tunes ranging from folk-like rock to jazz to trip hop to ethereal soundscapes is, nevertheless, as accessible and tuneful as it is unique. Like similarly adventurous, genre-bending performers (if not as expansive), Over the Rhine or Shivaree, female lead singer, C.R. Keyser-Posner teams with Rick Eppedio on this sonic check-off of contemporary sounds with often riveting results. The CD opener, “Ties That Bind,” grips with an understated melody – not unlike one of Annie Lennox’s smarter tunes, and is followed by the freakbeat like “Surreal No. 9” (which, on Disc 2, is given a more exploratory, “extended jam” treatment - as are a couple other tracks); “Bleecker Street” has an unhurried and engaging straight-up jazz vibe, while title song, “Mosaic” uses world rhythms to build tension to a chorus release that’s both tempered and sublime. Versatile and evocative as its title suggests, SpiceHouse’s “Mosaic” CD is a well-conceived and equally well-delivered, mix of pop and electronic styles that’s a fine addition to their catalog, and one that is sure to satisfy their fan base and discerning listeners just discovering this terrific outfit.
