Roller Ehse 2013.

Thank you all who came out on Saturday to Roller Ehse 2013 featuring Baltimore’s own Myconids and Chiffon. Ehse Records has a years-long history of marrying experimental music with skating activities, and the tradition raged on in full effect this past weekend thanks to all of you who made it out to Shake ‘n Bake. For those who sadly missed out, stayed tuned over the next couple of months for word on the next annual Ehse on Ice, set to take place early next year.

Mole Suit Choir in City Paper


City Paper took a comprehensive look at the origins and development of the duos music, outlining it as both “ancient and futuristic, avant-garde and deeply traditional.” The article goes on to say that Mole Suit Choir’s music “embodies the best of the city’s music scene today, while also remaining timeless.”

Horse Lords at Hopscotch Music Festival

Horse Lords received ‘Special Mention’ in Indy Week’s Hopscotch  Festival 2013 Day 3 Highlights! The article outlines which acts to visit during the festival, with Horse Lords singled out as a must-see:

“While they don’t fit the spirit of this piece, it would be criminal for me not to mention Horse Lords. This double-drumming Baltimore art-rock outfit’s rhythmic meditations balanced technical acrobatics with body-moving percussion to such a degree that I kept on dropping my unconvincing journalistic front and yelling ‘yeah!’”

Although, the festival has come to a close, Horse Lords will be launching their second North American tour in October, so be sure to catch them on the road!

Horse Lords Tour Reviews + Tour Wrap-Up

As the Horse Lords + Matmos US tour wraps up, positive reviews begin to roll in. The L.A. Times music blog Pop and Hiss referred to the performance at the Masonic Cemetery as “stunning.”

Likewise, The L.A. based music/travel blog Restless Cities said that Horse Lords’ music “would be problematic if not done with skill,” adding that there was “just the right amount of cowbell.”

Horse Lords and Matmos return home to Baltimore with a show at the 14K Cabaret on Tuesday.
