Originally intended as a multimedia performance art project combining photography and music, Evan Abeele and Denise Nouvion of Guelph, Ontario, have evolved into more of a fully realized band—a move that's paid off with the release of one of the best albums of 2012 thus far. Memoryhouse's The Slideshow Effect unleashes lush, richly imaginative arrangements and sharp lyrics that lend themselves to the photographic aesthetic of memory and time; but it's the collision of nostalgic meditation and melody on songs like "Punctum" that burrows into your whistling regimen for an entire day. These songs are simply timeless, pretty, sad, and ambitious—a pristine indie-pop record that ought to transfer well over to the live setting just as easily as it's become my plaintive go-to listen.
