Dead Horse “We Can Create Our Own Worlds” LP
I was recently introduced to this band in late 2013, and since then, I’ve been hooked. Pennsylvania post rocks, Dead Horse, have been at it since 2009 and have continued to tour and make records. The band’s atmospheric and melodious sound, clearly links it to other post rock groups like Braveyoung, God is an Astronaut, and Mogwai. It leaves you feeling emotionally overwhelmed, almost similar to classical music. You can get so many different vibes from instrumental music, which-to me- makes it exceptionally great to listen to at times. The band’s marriage of effect laden guitars, solid bass and drums, and harmonious keyboards is a definite win situation in terms of this recording. The recording itself can almost make one shed tears of sadness, and also give you the feeling that the journey has only begun and is far from being over. The 7 tracks on this album are all great in their own respect and for me, Deadhorse has to be one of my new favorite bands. Hopefully, they will keep doing what they’re doing for years to come.
