In many ways life is a bout movement and the different experiences we have in these movements whether it is in body, mind or spirit. The music of Abandoned Houses is a document of such experiences, as its fuzzy, lo fi bedroom loner pop/folk approach is more of necessary lens than an chosen aesthetic. Abandoned Houses' music is captured in a field recording-esque approach as every song has been documented as such. The mind behind Abandoned Houses, Mike Ciaravino, states the "mantra" if you will of the project rather poignantly on the Abandoned Houses Soundcloud page in saying "Obsessed and inspired by places that are desolate, abandoned, falling apart and being reclaimed by nature. I travel around wherever I am and write and record music in the places I find, capturing a collective essence in recordings and photographs. They are all unique and contribute in different ways to the music and sounds I create." "Untitled Spirals" is a collection of five songs that pull at the heart with longing and in its desolate veil provides comfort in the hope of a better tomorrow. Abandoned Houses is rich melodically and pulling together subdued sound to create sounds that are more textured than they appear from the outset. Coincidentally, the fuzz captured as a result of the recording style employed by Ciaravino, meshes exceptionally well with this aforementioned texture to offer it a unique nuance. "Untitled Spirals" is an edition 50 numbered cassettes with hand assembled stamped chipboard slip cases as well as stamped labels and a insert. Fans of Abandoned Houses should seek out Ciaravino's other work with CMR, World's Fair, and Glasses.
