horselords

Baltimore-based experimental rockers Horse Lords, who count Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner as a touring guitarist, are currently making their way around North America. They'll visit Chicago this Saturday (10/13) for a performance at the Hideout with Chandeliers. Advance tickets are still available.

The Lords welcomed a self-titled LP in late-September via Baltimore's Ehse Records. The album consists of two 10+-minute tracks, both of which you can stream at Ehse's website. The album's A-side, "Wild Strike," is also available at the bottom of this post. Horse Lords deal in polyrhythms, and lots of them. "Wild Strike" also features a great experimental saxophone freak-out (11-minutes in) from band member Andrew Bernstein. It'll be interesting to see what Jenn adds to this already dense quartet.

All Horse Lords tour dates and a stream of "Wild Strike" are below...
