Horse Thief - Trials & Truths [LP]
This youthful band is a purveyor of a panoramic yet nuanced sound, flowing from intimate to anthemic, the mood from vibrant to contemplative, with frontman Cameron Neal's lyrics ranging from confessional to metaphorical. The result evokes the wide-open spaces of America's Midwest but infuses the sense of grit and wonderment with edgier emotions.
Horse Thief was originally founded in Denton, TX, but moved to Oklahoma City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. The band subsequently signed with the Flaming Lips' management and soon came to the attention of Bella Union. Though their debut album, Fear In Bliss, was conceived at Horse Thief's Oklahoma headquarters the band decided to record the album in LA, ''to leave our comfort zone of Oklahoma'', and producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) has helped the band fuse their renowned stage performance with studio quality. Their upcoming album, Trials and Truths, also helmed by Monahan, is a reflection of their recent 18 months of touring, and figuring out how to make things work even when there are hard times. The touring seems to have formed a brotherhood with the band, and you can definitely see that collectivity and resilience on the stunning Trials and Truths.
