Many music fans in recent years have complained that modern music has lost something. Some indefinable quality, common in the musical landscape of decades past, is now missing in the mainstream.
Scott Houchens, songwriter and pianoman of Dayton, Ohio’s “The Pullouts”, wants to give listeners what they lost. The Pullouts’ 2014 album, The Thought of You Waiting on Me, is full of what Houchens describes as “weary songs laced with hope and happy songs with a sad message” that sound like they’d be more at home in your dad’s record collection than on your iPhone. The Pullouts’ 2017 EP, Knights of the Morning After, continues in this vein with increased piano-rock sensibility. ~ Joshua Lumpkin, Dayton City Paper
