Album of the month: Horseshoes “Desert”
Ever since Ryan Adams was asked to retire from the Alternative Country map and Jason Isobell got into trouble with Trump followers over whether or not to wear masks at concerts, I haven’t had a pleasant surprise within this genre so underrated by showbusiness.
Here comes a low-profile band like Horseshoes. Not to save a genre of music that doesn’t need saving. It is clear. But to give us back all the love for bucolic songs, made with love and dust, that play deep inside our broken heart.
Gems like “Near sided vision” and “Euphoria at Dawn” are just a few examples of this masterpiece called “Desert”, a collection of melancholy tracks that, with a Jeff Tweedy-style vocal, revives our desire to hit the road, open a cold beer and simply dance the night away.
Try it for yourselves.
