Track of the Day: ‘Caregiver’ by Memoryhouse
Easily one of the dreamiest songs of the new decade, and the group’s best song to date, ‘Caregiver’ transcends the Canadian group’s ‘chillwave’ tag and evokes a powerful sense of nostalgia, reflection and mystery. They still don’t have a proper LP out yet, but last year’s The Years EP and the ‘Caregiver’ / ‘Heirloom’ single have already established Memoryhouse as one of the finest dream-pop acts around – so it’s no surprise that indie powerhouse Sub Pop have signed them. Apparently we can expect a full-length sometime this year, but for now enjoy ‘Caregiver’, here afforded a video that’s something akin to a sentimental Harmony Korine treatment. Best enjoyed in hi-def.
