Didactic Debt Collectors is the new EP by Other Houses, the musical project of singer/songwriter Morgan Enos — best known as a music journalist for the GRAMMYs and other platforms. The disc will arrive July 7 via Aagoo Records.
The EP’s five songs — “Captive Audience,” “Jacket’s Creed,” “Drab Vocabulary,” “Arc of the Arrow,” and
“Swine Among the Relics” — were completely self-recorded by Enos in his tiny home office in Hackensack, New Jersey. Together, they comprise a highly personal song cycle addressing the spiritual crisis that can come with turning 30 — as well as assurance one will make it through.
