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.
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.”
Don’t miss the album release show tomorrow, November 3rd! Event here.
Come experience the live artistry of Mole Suit Choir with Liz Downing and Rupert Wondolowski as they perform songs from their album, Campfire Spacesuit ! Also, enjoy the sounds of Nathan Bell and Liz Durrete, as well as the words of author/filmmaker Stephanie Barber and author Megan McShea. Meet the minds at Metro Gallery on November 3rd. The festivities begin at 7:30pm… Be sure to check out the Mole Suit Choir release in the meantime!

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!
The City Paper has featured some artists circling the Ehse ring in their Big Baltimore Playlist. The playlist includes Ehse friends Horse Lords, Andrew Bernstein, Mole Suit Choir, Bobby Donnie, Marcel Du Swamp, and This World Sucks. Check out some unreleased material from Baltimore’s best and brightest!

Impose magazine posted some great photos from the Horse Lords + Matmos tour wrap-up in Baltimore at the 14k Cabaret. Check them out here!
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.
