Home Video: The Smoke
Today, Louisiana based duo Home Video are self-releasing their second album, The Automatic Process, which now becomes available all over North America.
Home Video is Collin Ruffino and David Gross, high-school friends from New Orleans who have been collaborating since their first short video in 1997, and originally recorded for electro powerhouse Warp Records.
Inspired early on by music from the likes of Massive Attack, Boards of Canada, Depeche Mode, and Phillip Glass, HOME VIDEO intertwine the classically-trained sensibilities of Gross with the confessional and at times existential lyrics of Ruffino. With The Automatic Process, the band layers samples, synthesizers, piano, guitar, and live drums to build an electro-tinted minimalist rock that drives steadily towards the sublime — a spacious soundtrack evocative of a fractured dream.
