I've seen this guy feature on some Last.FM lists, and so this may be of interest to some. His new release "Up On Bomber Mountain" is available on Rack & Ruin, and it comes with a bonus EP of 5 brand new tracks. So for those who have the 'leaked' album (haha) there is still something for you!
It's free as you know...
So what exactly is "Lean Horse Marathon"? lo-fi noise folk, dream pop, shoegaze? I mean shoegaze never really died, it maybe just had a snooze here and there, waiting for the next special new band to dust off a few cobwebs, or perhaps in the case of Lean Horse Marathon, take some of the best bits and mix them together with warm fuzzy dreamy pop songs.
Sometimes pigeonholes don't really suit, especially when the noise and reverb kicks in, transforming a dreamlike song into a distorted track echoing off in the distance. The opening track, "Today on Bomber Mountain" is a slow-starter, not giving much away and leaving the listener unsure of what to expect, before starting on its wonderful journey, which ends with "The Fuzz Song".
Alongside "Up On Bomber Mountain" comes a bonus EP, "Sometimes", a more rough-around-the-edges release, which shows yet another side to Lean Horse Marathon. Highly recommended.
