Boomkat Product Review:
Horses is the double-act of Alan Daly and Damien Forrester, wo according to their label, Split Femur "combine the hostile nature of artists such as Nurse With Wound, Throbbing Gristle, Hair Police, Yellow Swans and The Sugababes, with the dark ambient sound scapes of KTL and Raison D'etre". There can surely be no finer summary of the duo's sound, yet not even Mutya Buena herself could instil the kind of remorseless aural terrorism spouted by landslide-drone epic 'Burn Me Down'. This is no one-dimensional filthfest however, and tracks like 'Sarnath' reveal a very different side to Horses' abstract transmissions, taking a more poised approach to primal electronic outbursts, as if combining the percussive electro-primitivism of Wolf Eyes' human Animal with the death rattle of some failing/flailing oscillator. 'Moth' proves to be similarly discerning, building up a strangely porous waft of dark drone whilst looping vinyl runout groove crackles. Ace.
