Listen: Hour House – Stroke


Hour House is the duo of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna, formerly of Newcastle group Castings. They used to go under the name Motion (Sic), and before that Orinokoflo, but now they’ve renamed ahead of a new cassette release through Altered States Tapes.

Entitled ‘Stroke’, the tape appears to be a collection of manipulated samples and synth improvisations, though I’ve only got the two embedded samples below to go by. Apparently the B side features input from Cooper Bowman too, who runs Altered States, plays in Flat Fix, and writes for Crawlspace sometimes. Usually anything that comes out of the Castings camp is worth investigating, so have a listen.
