HOUSE OF TUNES - It is what it is
It Is What It Is' explains itself - a mix of musical styles, instruments, musicians, political concerns, social commentary, and languages.
'House of Tunes is Dave, Nick, and Chris Houston, as well as Dominic Hein and Banu Senay. Their mother Marjorie Houston featured on the piano.
Tracks include a poem in Turkish by the Kurdish poet Arif Dirlik, a tribute to the late great Ian Curtis, music about Australia's colonial violence, a rock song about serial killer Ivan Milat, a traditional Armenian folk tune, Pachelbel's canon, a love song or two, and a Ba Ba Ba Baaaa. It has Banu Senay playing the ney, in a sufi-punk first.
Produced by Christian Pyle, SS Prawn and Spanner
