2) The experimental pop band Home formed in Tampa, Florida, in the early 1990s before relocating to New York in 1996. The band released eight self-produced, sequentially-numbered, ultra-low-distribution albums on cheap Radio Shack cassettes before signing to Sony’s Relativity Records label, which distributed its ninth album (appropriately titled IX) in 1995. This album, Home’s only release on a major label, received favorable reviews in publications such as Spin, The Village Voice and Magnet. Subsequent Home albums have appeared on independent record labels, also to generally positive reviews. Dave Fridmann of Mercury Rev was the producer behind at least two of Home’s albums.
