"This collection (released after Hoffman parted ways with Virgin) swings, shuffles, and grooves without the heavy atmospherics that were so prevalent on her debut. Tracks like "Bring You Down," "Dust Off Your Dreams," and "Song for a Boy" manage to combine Hoffmann's penchant for melody and groove with her strange dark lyrical slant. It is unfortunate that Hoffman will not get the necessary marketing to make her a household name with this release, but it is obvious that the artistic freedom she now has paid off in spades. A great soundtrack for a big sky.” - Chris True, 



From The Blue House by Lauren Hoffman

Anti-production and evil dictatorship by Lauren Hoffman, aided and abetted by Brian Kehew 
'From the Blue House' was committed to 16-track analog tape in June and July 1998 at The Blue House in Virginia, by Brian Kehew 
And blended to a creamy consistency by Ethan Johns in August 1998 at LAFX North Hollywood, California 
Except for 'Look Like Shit', which is almost entirely Lauren's fault, with a little assistance from Matthew Sherwood. 
Mastered from 24-bit by Allen Tucker at Foothill Digital NYC 

All songs by Lauren Hoffman (Amrit Music BMI) except 'Whoever You are' by John D'earth/Dawn Thompson (Magic Times Music BMI)
