06 Stieglweiss (BONUS TRACK)
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.
