October House (Emerald Wood)

Best known as vocalist/guitarist for local pop-psych quartet the Alice Rose, JoDee Purkeypile's premiere solo effort doesn't stray far from his band's output. Recorded, produced, and performed entirely by its creator, October House seldom self-indulges, with echoes of Emitt Rhodes and Tommy Keene running rampant. The nearly breathless "Don't Let It Die" and the cool-edged bop of "Disappear From Here" are just two of its many charms. ***.5
