Album Notes
Tempestuous, elusive and utterly hypnotic, Warhorses conjure a dark, trance-like spell that contrasts sharply with the prevailing music trends of the time. Their xenolithic approach to song creation, molding heavy trance-rock grooves into a fluid and melodic sonic landscape, has Warhorses redefining what a rock group can be. This Detroit area group resurrects the concept of space-rock for the new era, creating droning soundscapes of bleak beauty and irresistible pulse.

Two highly impressive releases from Warhorses, a retro rock band who seamlessly combine raw, dark and psychedelic components into a thoroughly exciting whole. First up, the Song of the Month EP, which features five tracks. Rumble Seat is heavy psych-tinged retro rock with a hypnotic groove and lashings of vintage organ; reminds me a little of Purson. Horse 5 is dark rock with a Wild West twang and a loping, trancelike bassline. Crawl translates an early 1990s indie vibe into a rock setting with its drawn-out vocals and fuzzy, hazy atmosphere. Red Turns Black is a dark, snarly number that bridges the gap between goth and psychedelia. Joyful Boy is laid-back yet sinister, heavy psych-rock shot through with a sense of experimentation. On the 7" we have Burning Desire, which is slow and sludgy, with a sleazy garage rock sound, and Bury Your Dead, raw and intense retro rock incorporating a mindbending guitar solo and hypnotic pulsing electronics. Definitely a band I'm keen to hear more from.

"...impressive examples of psychedelic, sludgy retro-rock that seem to see the bands exploring a slightly more subtle way to get their message across than beating people around the heads. It’s interesting to see these obviously talented musicians progress."
