Shabazz Palaces / The Horrors

The Horrors took matters to another level of performance.. [utilizing] brooding electric grooves and jeering melodies. Forget the spidery androgynous demeanor and spazzy mannerisms - these guys bring it when it comes to live performance, pure and simple. Their new album is a solid piece of work, a considerable triumph over their previous and an exciting sampling of their continuing creative evolution.

The band opened with the first song off new album Skying, called "Changing The Rain," fearlessly putting their newest foot forward in a challenge to those hung up on the band's earlier sounds. We took the evolution in stride, however, as the British quintet delivered a solid performance that continually dipped into new material, finally concluding around the midnight hour with the new 80s throwback "Moving Further Away".

Not many festivals can boast an appearance from both Marketa Irglova and Pig Destroyer in the same day. That's what day three (9/9) of MusicFestNW had to offer, with the Friday at the festival boasting a diverse lineup that featured both (in different venues, but still) as well as Iron & Wine, The Olivia Tremor Control, Shabazz Palaces, Wizard Rifle, MSTRKRFT, BOAT, and many, many others.

The Horrors are true masters at biting other peoples records...
I mean, the music they copy is good, but they are immitators, not innovators.

^Agreed 9:33.

They know their history, but they are nothing but a copy of a copy of a copy. I'm sure they'll find some other era to bite off of for their next release.

Anyone want to take bets?

I'm going to say they'll either be a Wax Trax or Amp Rep looking band.

Ha! The horrors probably have tiny shriveled penises. Tiny fem dudes with little wieners.

The Horrors are a great band. And people saying they do nothing but copy others have probably never written a single piece of music themselves.

^I've written many pieces of music. And, sure most bands' sound will be informed by a previous band. But The Horrors continue to change styles of music like they change their clothing. It just comes off very hollow.

I don't think I would be shocked if they put out an Odd Future inspired album next.
