Sad Horse – “North Portland Music Series, Volume #2” – [Mississippi Records]

Sad Horse brings in a lo-fi bounce. This 7” was released in 2008 as part of Mississippi Records’ “North Portland Music Series”, showcasing the wide musical range coming out of Portland over the last 101 years. This whole thing comes out to a whopping 5 minutes, and each fleeting moment is worth all the while. So much twang! Odd times and churning rhythms! These are energetic, angular, whimsical blasts delivered with punk rock sensibilities and the simplicity of a duo. Boy/Girl vocals shriek, rant and chant. These two are versed in not singing, producing plenty of good humored hollers and all sorts of silly vocal sounds. Sad Horse packs a crunchy, garagey homemade flavor full of sweetness. -Surfer Rosa
