The House of Love formed in the late 80's and had a small amount of success...You'll hear bits of Echo and the Church here. Their strength seems to lie in Guy Chadwick's voice, in my opinion. There's a pretty good biography of them over at All Music Guide.

You can still find some of their stuff through Amazon, with the best album being an import collection of their earlier stuff at Creation Records. There's also a best of over at itunes, but it's mostly their later stuff.
The House of Love

Apparently, there's a new album in the works, with a release set for spring of next year. Here are two tracks: "Christine" was a minor hit and "Hope" is one of my favorites, both off their Creation Records debut album.

House of Love - Christine - REMOVED

I don't know what's going on, it's been going down off and on for the last week. I've emailed them, but gotten no response as of yet.

You should try web nymph, it does a pretty good job as well, over on the left it's got a link to filter out just the mp3 blogs.

The real strength of House of Love lies in the shimmering guitar work of Terry Bickers.

"Shine On" is a splendid song as well, although it hints at a lot more than it delivers on, which makes "Christine" an overall better composition, I reckon.
