Horse Jumper Of Love - Natural Part


I've been listening to Natural Part a lot over the past few days and I love it. However I sense that it will not appeal to plenty of regular IDHAS followers. This isn't me being too kool for skool or condescending, it just doesn't really fit the template here.

But it is wonderful and I'd love others to give it a go. It isn't easily accessible and may take repeated listening, but I think you will be surprised at how the album hooks you, it is hypnotic. It is Indie in the true sense, not because it isn't on a major label.

Horse Jumper Of Love are a Boston Trio who specialise in Slowcore and the album is definitely downbeat and a bit bleak. Possibly in a way which Radiohead were after they dumped the choruses, but there is also hints of King Crimson's early 80s and it is a little bit Codeine at times. 

It even reminds me of The Bordellos with a budget at times. But it really has got me good style. It is an album to be listened to all the way through. It won't make you happier, but it certainly made me think how interesting it is. 

I've deliberately not embedded any songs in the hope that you will head off to the Bandcamp site here where you can listen to and maybe buy the album.
