Dumping It Out

Mail the Horse found their start in coastal New Hampshire but moved their straight rocking sound to Brooklyn a couple years ago where it could drink too much, work too much, fall asleep on the subway, get robbed by a bum, and learn how to have a sense of humor about how sometimes life sucks all the time. This new city-soaked sound now finds it's physical manifestation in the form of a 12” LP called Great Kills. The record plays like a collection of love songs to the failure of love and while there is little love on this record there is plenty of proof that it exists. Sonically the band has one foot grounded in the tradition of master craftsmen like Bob and Bruce, but this is clearly a band that listens and understands that great rock music is always changing. What comes out wears something like jeans between a working man's boot-cut and the slim fitting tapers of MTH's Brooklyn neighbors. Great Kills is sturdy, reliable rock and roll that still demands you to listen to better music than your parents did.
