It’s official, Memoryhouse’s debut record, The Slideshow Effect, is now available on the literal, and less tangible, digital shelves. The fine folks at the Sub Pop Megamart (That’s us! We’re the fine folks I’m talking about.) have a small handful of the limited edition, Memoryhouse photo books we were offering to people who preoredered The Slideshow Effect, and we’ll be sending those out with orders while they last. Just a friendly reminder from us to you, re: Memoryhouse.
On February 28th, Memoryhouse are releasing their debut record, The Slideshow Effect, and will be kicking off a 15-date North American tour, with a handful of European shows to follow.

First of all, Happy New Year! You guys are the best. Seriously. 2012 really feels like it’s going to be a good one, or at least an okay one. But, we’re really feeling optimistic. The optimism I was just saying about stems from the fact that the first couple of months of 2012 we’re putting out some pretty awesome records, and if it’s any indication of the rest of the year, we’re in for a great year (at least until the Mayan calendar proves true, and we all part from our mortal vessels, or whatever).
On February 14th, we’ve got Animal Joy, the Sub Pop debut from Shearwater, a record we’re very proud and excited to be releasing. Then, we’ve got the debut LP from Memoryhouse, called The Slideshow Effect, and it’s a very strong debut. On March 13th, we’ve got the debut LP from South Africa’s Spoek Mathambo, called Father Creeper. It’s impossible to pin this record down genre-wise, which is part of what makes it destined to be one of the coolest sounding records of the year. Also on March 13th, we’re releasing a long-awaited collection of the long out-of-print first four albums from Australia’s feedtime—all remastered and with bonus material. We’re rounding out an action-packed March with the debut record from Seattle’s THEESatisfaction, and a 7" from Retribution Gospel Choir, both on the 27th.
Yep, 2012 is definitely shaping up to be at least as pretty great as 2011.
