Tragic Folk Rock from Portland, ME: Tall Horse

Every year, so much amazing new music is released, and there just isn't enough time to catch it all. An intriguing record we found in our digital submissions is Tall Horse’s Ep “Glue.” The Portland, Main trio plays a brand of introspective alt folk-rock that's at once imaginative and suspenseful. The record starts off with the stand out track “Sour,” some kind of bitter anthem that mixes a spacious and borderline epic electric sound with the band's recurring Americana influences. Heavy and cathartic, the song puts us in a good headspace for the second track, “Old Gun Shot,” a more traditional folk ballad, except in the rather paradoxical, bleak lyrics. There’s never really an upper on the EP, but who needs that anyway if the music is consistently good. It's really solid and tragic song writing, and if you are strong enough to deal with that, chances are you will enjoy this record. - Paul Jordan Talbot

GREAT WESTERN PLAIN

Portland, Maine’s Great Western Plain float in a strange place somewhere between Americana and Noise Rock. 2014's Elastic Smile starts off with a 12 minute bass-driven jam called "Thom" which gets fun and noisy, but "Venado Negro" is the stand-out track, mixing a smooth chant-like vocal with fuzzy bass rumbling below. Their melodic but heavily processed vocals, bluesy bass lines and chord progressions have this rural quality that suits both a long drive across the “great western plain” and punks kicking over trash cans in the big city. Listen here. - Paul Jordan Talbot
