Minihorse: More Time EP

Minihorse: More Time EP

Debut EP from an Ypsi-based group mining the sad, ‘gazey sounds of the ’90s for their fuzzy alt-pop songs. For fans of Failure, Hum, Pinback, certain elements of the first Weezer album, and sitting home alone, drinking. Okay, just kidding, it’s not THAT depressing. There’s controlled distortion and some bendy guitar sounds, but the vocals are clear and coherent (sometimes there’s even harmonies). “More Time” actually sounds closer to a very straightforward, non-avant Sonic Youth. “Under My Head” is sadder and prettier and has some sort of Mellotron-like soft keyboard drone. Playing around the area often, including a show with Fred Thomas @ UFO Factory in Detroit on 5/19!
