Bell Horses (Jenny and Sybarite)
"Bell Horses is a left-field pop outing from Xian Hawkins & Jenny Owen Youngs. The 8 songs that comprise their debut album [This Loves Last Time] work together to create a world of contrasts both challenging & familiar. Arrangements blend acoustic instruments (guitars, strings, piano, percussion) with synthetic textures and samples while vocals sit up front in the mix, often doubling as instruments themselves...Grab Sybarite's Antlers remix, courtesy of Hob Nob Wines where the track first premiered, above. A Bell Horses track, which features The Antlers' Michael Lerner on drums, is up there too.
...Xian Hawkins records as Sybarite - making distinct & lauded electronica for a variety of labels, most notably 4AD, Temporary Residence & Ghostly International. His music has been featured in film & television. Jenny Owen Youngs is a singer songwriter who signed to Nettwerk Records in 2006 and recently released her sophomore record, Transmitter Failure, to critical acclaim. Also on the album is Alexander Ericson (Alberta Cross, Stjarna) contributing vocals to three of the tracks, Michael Lerner, drummer for NYC band The Antlers (Frenchkiss) & classical string player Eve Boltax."
