You know I'm a sucker for sexy duos, and Memoryhouse contains the best of both genders. Currently all I have from them is a cut called "To The Lighthouse" that they recently put up on their MySpace page, but I'm anxious to hear what'll come next from this Ontario pair. Take a listen and I'm sure you'll be addicted to!
