Duke LaRue these meandering songs and trippy guitar work remind me of Robert Fripp or Adrian Belew... or maybe someone else... psychedelic hints of electronica... the vocals are quiet but menacing... this may have been in a Relapse grab bag.. a superb effort overall... the songs drone on and produce an eerie soundscape... but what farrier wants to shoe all those hooves?

warstreets There was a time when people thought LPD and PTV grew old and soft. Hehe. Good thing Jenks didn't listen to those people. Dead Ringers is a reminder that subtle shadows in the darkness, can be just as terrifying as screams through the din.

Joe Wipp Horseback pretty much strip away the metal and go full blown psychedelic rock, ambient drone, and some prog electronic. As much as I love black metal I'm glad Jenks stayed with clean vocals on this one. This is how you make modern psychedelic and occult music. Favorite track: Shape of the One Thing.

about

'Dead Ringers,' HORSEBACK's newest full-length album, is a lush, heady, and singular blend of organic and synthetic textures. The new LP sees the one-man Chapel Hill, NC experimental project continuing to evolve while staying true to their distinctive sound. Written, produced, engineered, and mixed by the mastermind Jenks Miller, 'Dead Ringers' finds HORSEBACK weaving a bright web of drone, krautrock, shoegaze, metal and psychedelic elements, driven by wispy guitars, synths, beats, and clean vocals, and bolstered by dense layers of hypnotic resonance. The music is heavy yet light, taking influence from the doomiest grooves and the nuance of minimal electronics, and is the most cohesive representation of HORSEBACK's musical vision to date.
