The Horrors

The Horrors swept through town earlier this week, playing two nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday and Tuesday (4/9 and 4/10). I was there Monday night for what was a pretty good show. While I like their new album Skying a lot (it made my Best of 2011 list), the album's midtempo shuffle doesn't make for the most exciting live show, though the band came alive on more energetic songs like "I Can See Through You" and the motorik pounder "Moving Further Away" which closed the night. Primary Colours tracks "Scarlet Fields" and "Three Decades" still sound terrific.

The Horrors play Coachella this weekend and next, scooting up to San Francisco in between. Seattle garage rockers Night Beats opened the Monday MHoW show. Pictures of both bands, plus Horrors setlist, are below.

Definitely the worst band I've ever seen at an ATP

I like the Horrors & thought they were pretty good at ATP last year. Their last two albums are good. To each their own.

Yeah of all the great new bands that played ATP last year, this one made the least amount of sense.

I'm not joking. When I saw horrors at ATP, I indeed walked the fuck out.

Something was for sure wrong with their sound on the last tour. They were AMAZING at MHOW this year though. If you don't like them, it's simpley because you don't like their music style, don't hate on a good thing just cause it's not your cup of tea.

Geoff Barrow produced their second record and thats why they were at the ATP Portishead curated.

The horrors are serious advocates of the hummus lifestyle. That alone warrants your respect.
