Son of a Blue House is a side project from Greg Rode, primary force behind Indianapolis-based Mystikos Quintet. This initial offering, '70,' serves up an enticing melange of ambient cinescapes, downtempo flavors and Appalachian-drenched Americana. Deep atmospheres and electronic beats lay the foundation for an ongoing interplay among live drums, down-home instrumentation, overdriven slide guitars and a variety of vocal stylings. '70' evokes imagery of old trains, mountain landscapes, exotic locations and an overall aura of affable mystery. This leisurely paced affair provides the perfect soundtrack for the movie in your mind. So settle back, relax, and enjoy.
