Sad Horse - Purple On Purple Makes Purple lp (Water Wing)


"Like twins who share a secret game of their own invention, Geoff
Soule and Elizabeth Venable have in Sad Horse a band that operates by
its own gleeful logic. Hearing these songs, you can tell there are rules
keeping all of the clockwork pieces moving together but they are
elusive to anyone except the two of them. From the simple set-up of
guitar, drums and two voices Sad Horse spin a maniacal whirlwind,
shooting off songs that twist and turn and seem on the verge of shaking
to pieces before suddenly careening into a great big chorus or hooky
riff. It's an exhilarating blur at first but as soon as your ears
adjust it becomes clear that at heart the record is a collection of
strange and wonderful pop songs. Purple On Purple Makes Purple is the
debut LP of this Portland, OR duo, displaying 14 top-notch songs at
45rpm, and their return to vinyl after a beloved 7" on Mississippi
Records. Geoff and Elizabeth have both contributed musicianship to Tara
Jane O'Neil (K Records) and Naysayer (Carrot Top). Geoff was also a
founding member of the San Francisco outfit, Fuck (Matador, Smells Like
Records). Sad Horse has shared the stage with the likes of Trumans
Water, Jackie-O-Motherfucker, The Whines, The Sea and Cake and Eat Skull
and recently completed a tour of Japan and Korea." - Water Wing
