Well, the House of Power is back at it again.  Riding the momentum of their mildly successful Christmas Album "House of Power Presents Christmas Presents for Christmas: An Evening with Eggnog in the House of Power", Jack Merchant and Brody Bjornstad got back in the studio for another cover album for the ages.  House of Power's latest effort titled "An Afternoon in the House of Power:  These 2 Dorks (aka House of Power) Perform The Sound of Something That Loosely Resembles Music" is sure to get your feet tapping, your stereo cranking, and most likely your neighbor tapping on your door asking you to turn down said stereo.   From "The Sound of Music" to "Climb Every Mountain", the album will whisk you away to the romantic far-off countryside of Nazi-invaded Austria.  Clad appropriately in their lederhosen and Alpine hats, and fueled by the authentic Salzburger beer Stiegl, the band sat down in the studio on June 18, 2011.  For 12 hours, they poured their hearts, souls, and 18 pints of delicious Stiegl beer into the project to put their spin on the Rodgers and Hammerstein classics.  Initially conceived as a birthday present for Merchant's sister, the album some are calling "one of the top 3 or 4 best Sound of Music cover albums produced in a Peoria, IL area basement in the past year or two" should provide a treat for listeners of all ages.  

Critics all agree -  "An Afternoon in the House of Power:  These 2 Dorks (aka House of Power) Perform The Sound of Something That Loosely Resembles Music" is most definitely an album that should have never been made, but since it was, you may as well listen to it.  This summer, thanks to House of Power, the hills ARE alive...with the sound of something that loosely resembles "Music".
