From the musical Athens of the south… which is, um, Athens, comes melodic sludgegaze warriors Gift Horse. Feels good to hear the ’90s grimy slacker garage aesthetic come back packaged as a fuzzy dream pop trojan (gift) horse, and without all the poppycock about weed muffins and wishing the cat could speak English (you know who we’re talking about). Epic yet simple, resplendent with all the right scuzzy guitar tones, Gift Horse welcomes you to the no wuss zone if you’re ready to throw down that Best Coast album and come hang with the winners. Feels good, man.
Hear Gift Horse’s most triumphant full length, Mountain of Youth, streaming on Bandcamp, and you can download for a low price in your choice of format (love you Bandcamp).
For fans of: The Swirlies, Chapterhouse, Asobi Seksu
