Young Canadian duo Memoryhouse--a three-piece for touring purposes--stopped by the round room to play us a song that's actually considerably older than they are: The Police's 1981 hit "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," one of a trio of big singles from the band's Ghost In The Machine album. There's a bit of gender swapping here, and Memoryhouse's Evan Abeele points out that it's kind of a "manic pixie dream girl" thing to do. (We're pretty sure he meant that in a very positive way.) Memoryhouse's excellent debut album, The Slideshow Effect, was released by Sub Pop earlier this year. Check it out!
