about

House Blends is the bold, independent output by Matt Dellecker that creates a sound of his own. "Well, I grew up listening to Elvis, because that was my sister's favorite and also listened to George Jones, because that was my dad's favorite. So, I think after kind of making my rounds listening to rock, thrash metal, ambient music, post-rock, jazz, and blues, I sort of liked the idea of simply being a singer-songwriter like George Jones and Elvis, but also having a sound like the bands I was listening to on my own."

Songs like 'Eclipse' and 'What Would You Say?' are the best blends of Dellecker's songwriting and musical abilities. The textural and dynamic blends throughout the album really push the boundaries for the standard singer-songwriter. House Blends is an album that is saturated with passion and aggression that it is not just an album to be heard, but to be felt. "This whole project came from a concept after I wrote a few songs and had the 'House Blends' title on it. Many great moments in life stem from the times you socialize at a bar or coffee house where you met new friends, start new relationships, or get closer to current friends. I was looking at that gateway that coffee brought people together, and because that was possible the antithesis was, as well. So, this album was just away to look all the portals of loss, socialization, togetherness, independence, and dedication, that are open to us when getting a cup of coffee and learning about each other and ourselves."

Still, this is the first batch of songs by the New Jersey native, who is already planning on the next project. "I made House Blends in just a few short months of writing at the end of 2012, but they really took shape at the open mics I would attend around my area. This was the first go-around I had performing by myself so I spent the time finding my own sound and letting the songs take shape on their own live. So, with the next group of songs, I am going to go at creating the same way. Although, I am in the process of fleshing out my stage set up, and I expect the sound will be larger and much more intense.'

Track Name: Suffer To Save
Who will I precede,
The fool or the genuine?
Tell me there is nothing there,
Or would you please spare a note to care.

And I can’t come back this time.
No, I can’t come back this time!

Not after the stars had been found in the night,
But after the waves that crashed, whose might,
Had debased the walls that hid a cave,
Where absurdity is to suffer to save.

And I can’t come back this time
No, I can’t come back this time!

Who would quench the sun,
Though the light had been bright,
Just to ramble around here in the dark?

Who would quench the sun,
Though the light had been bright,
Just to ramble around here in the dark?

I crave for, a happy ending
Or even a clean break!

I need to know,
Is this how it goes?
Or is this how it’s supposed to end?
Track Name: Ebb and Flow
Out from my second story window,
I escaped in the twilight breeze.
Oneiric hazes slowly slumming.
Would these winds blow with me?

I chose to evict my ghosts,
Reclaiming my redemption,
I can feel them following me,
Pining for my affection.

Do you feel the common thread?

Keep your fucking ears to the ground.
Before it all, comes crumbling down.

Under this covering
Through the course of my memories
Fear, can come in different strains
That you will never know

Don’t expect me to forget
This concentrated message
That rips right through
The steel wall

Favored whims regress through passage
Reticent my body screams
A love complex always does damage,
Oh, but that’s what I need.

Do you feel the common thread?

Keep your fucking ears to the ground.
Before it all comes crumbling down.

Under this covering
Through the course of my memories
Solace, can come in different strains,
That you will never know

I need to know!
What my life will bestow
Or can I even grow
Oh, what will I become?

Guilty burdens
I have supplicated, paralyzes,
Like the venom in my veins
Ebb and flow
I lay my body on the shore
To wash my life clean

Maybe, I don't need you
But the shrine should always be in view
To remind the ones that never had
The on, there with them hand in hand
To cross the line here in the sand

Guilty burdens
I have supplicated, paralyzes,
Like the venom in my veins
Ebb and flow
I lay my body on the shore
To wash my life clean

To wash my life clean
To wash my life clean
Track Name: Eclipse
Are you sure, you’re not mistaken?
Our future holds our lives suspect
In solid precarious positions
That outlines the illusions of our conquests

And now the echoes of my silence
Roll down the cavern walls like cold sweat

Twisting and turning, what’s the will of men?
Ranting and raving, the spice of life is a blend

Eclipsed between the shades and facets
Learning to permeate our violent thoughts
So we can grow
And on the other side of this mountain
Are calming waters, can I reach the summit.

Grace comes at the cost,
Of what we’ve lost.
Just like the waves,
The moon does make.
The ebb and flow,
Is what we know.
What we know

Eclipsed between the shades and facets
Learning to permeate our violent thoughts
So we can grow
Track Name: What Would You Say?
Tell me you didn’t let go of your heart?
Because it’s the most significant part
Don’t you go looking around for the arms
That could bring a remission from a stall

A star, extinguished ball of frozen plight
Messengers recoil in fright
From unstable thoughts within open minds
And feelings so dark, in the light

Paranoia robs a broken fever
Riches spoil the endless vast of creatures
When all you wanted was to feel
But nevermore, will I see you

What would you say when I see you
Walking by in my dreams?
What would you say when I see your face
Fleeting through these scenes?

Are you afraid to go?
Are you afraid to go?
Are you afraid to go?
Are you afraid?
Track Name: The Boat
Just like the boat
That sailed through the barge
Had no means to stop
Towards the shore it charged
You are blind to the light
Always walking through the dark
You’ve been pushed far away
Honey, where’s the line been drawn?

Anxious trembles beneath the sheath

Whittle riddles from this mess
Into a flowing stream
To dip your face and drown your fears
Then run to the streets
Seven years of bad luck
With the Mother of Deceit
Take your chances here my friend
With the warmth of company

But, there is a fire inside this room
That burns inside of you
Rage compels, you must ensue
Before, this slow burn engulfs you

And love the way it is, will ride deserted heels
Banished to urban throes you lost your inner zeal
To create this monumental stride towards grace concealed
Within conflict thrives the wounds that never heal

Bellow for the life that left
Never knowing why
The mirror tricks the past to tell
What in the future lies
You hear wise words bereft of wisdom
Letting impulse decide
The path that should be chosen
Arrogant are your cries

But, there is a fire inside this room
That burns inside of you
Rage compels, you must ensue
Before, this slow burn engulfs you

And love the way it is will ride deserted heels
Banished to urban throes you lost your inner zeal
To create this monumental stride towards grace concealed
Within conflict thrives the wounds that never heal

Anxious trembles beneath the sheath
Beckon reason from the deep

I’m sorry
For what we made you
I’m sorry
For what we made you
