With it's genesis in Friday night intoxicant-fueled sing-alongs in Greg and Melissa Host's living room, the band has grown into a nearly-unique 5 piece outfit which has been schizophrenically described as concocting '60s-influenced psychedelic indie garage pop with a touch of folk and surf' or more succinctly, 'jangle pop.' 'We sound like a faux rock band playing at a cocktail party in some episode of 'I Dream of Jeanie'," explains principal songwriter and rhythm guitarist Greg B. Host. Combining jangly guitars, soaring male/female harmonies, modern electronic psychedelia, and marital angst, The Hosts are attempting to put their own spin on the 'Detroit sound.' Greg's simple melodies, love of 60s pop culture and tortured confessional poetry coupled with Melissa's lyrical kick and sweet yet rough vocals have been impressing listeners both live and in cyber land since nearly the turn of the century.
