Gnarly Horse

Gnarly Horse

A melting pot of gloopy garage meets fiery rock in the out-put which has a raw energy coated in a calming buzz  that minds of the combustion of the sun with the bright, benign appearance belieing the intense uncontrolled furnace raging therein.

The first of the four songs – Dopamine – being my pick of the release.

Haydn Rothrock – Going Without Goodbyes (feat. The Killer Kooks) – Single Review

The US fuzzy-rock project Haydn Rothrock revealed the newest track – Going Without Goodbyes (feat. The Killer Kooks) – on the 11th.

Haydn Rothrock

Of different texturing to the music of introduction the new single features guitar strings so loose they distort themselves in their own bounce, which immediately slows down the pace and dynamic range resultingly affording the composition a grungy pout that can’t but endear the song to the listener as it slouches through the room akin to a teenage sulk.

I look forward to hearing more by Haydn Rothrock in short order as the music delivers its miserable disposition towards the world which is simultaneously able to firmly have its tongue in cheek almost as a self-parody without it becoming a farce and generating songs that bear immediate replay to find other eddies of ideas missed first time around.

This is a review, which is late, having exchanged emails towards the end of last month, therefore apologies are due to everyone, yourself included.

The most recent LP Bowl Cut was released towards the end of last month and is available on bandcamp through Spirit Goth Records. A roughly twenty four minutes ten track album of good time rock’n’roll.

The music plays as though at different speeds, giving the feeling of a cassette tape running on a loose spool giving it a surfy texture with the extended hiss of guitar laying alongside stretched vocal as the bass and percussion skip along, verily galloping around the room.

The fifth song is Playground Blues and my pick of the release.

Far more effectively than any cleansing earbuds Witch Magnet (available on bandcamp) clears debris from the lugholes as, akin to a rasp shaping wood, the burring guitar / bass combinations shear across the room carving deep imprint in to the plaster, whilst the percussion pulleys the force in great emphasis as, unexpectedly, the drifting vocal gives the track a smoothing finish and resultingly the audience becomes completely involved in the tidal motion of the song as the rotational yaw flows back and forth in differing tempo and direction.

Joy Again

Towards the end of last month they put out a couple of singles, one of which was Kim. Which spins through the room like a dayglo whirling-top lifting the spirits of the listener with its infectious blurry guitar, foot-stomping bass / percussion, trippy synths and flurry of vocal – all of which is wrapped up within two minutes.


Kim – Single – Joy Again is available on iTunes.*
