Horse Lords – InterventionsPosted: October 10, 2016
[ Northern Spy, 2016 ]
Baltimore’s Horse Lords are one of the most uncompromising experimental bands these days, bending the limits of the rock genre with African polyrythms, minimalism and hypnotic repetition, while never losing some its energetic, punk approach. Interventions, their newest album, put them ahead of even themselves (because they’re already in front of everyone else when it comes to rock music) and antes up the amount of kaleidoscopic mathematical psychedelia all around. The tracks on Interventions are divided into almost single-length intervals, each of which reveals a whole new soundworld full of intricate guitar tribes and tribulations, broken rhythms and muscular, funky bass to create a unique concoction reminiscent of a hall of warped mirrors. Highly recommended!
