Stream the Babies’ Sidewinding ‘Our House on the Hill’

The one time side-project between Brooklyn lo-fi luminaries becomes a full-time concern, readies its second full-length and Woodsist debut, out next week

The Babies were born as a side project, a means for founding members Kevin Morby (Woods) and Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls) to “trade song ideas and play house parties.” But in the past two years, the Brooklyn duo has seen the group bloom into another formidable, full-time band. Next week, they will release Our House on the Hill, their second full-length and first to feature bassist Brian Schleyer. It’s a record they recorded away from home, over two weeks in Los Angeles with producer Rob Barbato (the Fall, Cass McCombs, Darker My Love), and without question their most varied and engrossing outing to date. Hear it in full below.
