"The Wonderful Life Of Ched Bob" EP Review
Mountain-House kicked off the new year with a bang as they released this new EP on New Year's Eve. Let's dive on in and see why 2018 will be a big year for this promising band from Ohio. The opening track "Jessica" starts off slow but erupts with the passion of a hundred Emo songs at once. There's a slight Taking Back Sunday/Dashoboard Confessional vibe that radiates from the track. "Call It Like I See It" cuts right in and doesn't let go with it's infectious sound. It's a radio friendly track that'll pull in listeners with ease. You'll be singing along to the chorus in no time and reach for that repeat button. "Friends" is a track that was previously released by the band a year prior. It's fast paced and doesn't hold anything back. There's a Pop Punk influence on the track but it still has those Emo tendencies as well. It's a very dynamic track that showcases their sound perfectly. "Butterscotch Daydream" takes the energy down a bit. The track has a more Indie Rock vibe as the instrumentation is the star of the track. It's a real treat to listen to and easy to get into. Later in the track it really goes off the rails and the passion just overflows out of it. The closing track "Coconut" soars high with strong melodies and a strong instrumentation that's hard and soft at times. It's everything that Mountain-House is all about and it closes out the EP on a high note.

Verdict:
The new EP from Mountain-House shines bright with their distinct Emo/Indie Rock sound.

-Interview- (4/12/17)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Mountain House” and is there any meaning behind it?

We just kind of messed around and played until we got the sound we wanted. As far as the name goes, we just think living on a house in the mountains would be dope.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your "Friends" single?

We want them to hear "Friends" and hopefully be interested in hearing our other music. It would also be cool to tell their friends about it. No pun intended.


3. What can people expect from your live show?

A rockin' environment where everyone can be themselves and enjoy music together.


4. What's your favorite track to play live?

We don't really have a favorite. We just like playing music and having a good time with the crowd.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

We are just going to name four because we can't decide. Joyce Manor, Tigers Jaw, Tiny Moving Parts, and Sorority Noise. It would be a blast.


6. Any crazy show stories?

One of our house shows had to shut down early because cops were supposedly coming. Never seen so many sober people run for absolutely no reason.


7. What’s your take on the current state of Rock?

It's seen better days. We are hoping those days roll back around.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in Ohio both locally and state wide?

There is a wide variety of different bands both locally and state wide. Full of really awesome people.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

It's a tricky situation. The artist definitely deserves to make something off of their music.


10. What’s next for Mountain-House>

Hopefully lots of shows with a bunch of good times.


11. Any shoutouts?

Shout outs to Basement Religion, Minor 'Love, Seth Canan and the Carriers, Gabe Maas and the Bruins, Life in Idle, and Rion Ringo. They slay.
