Mail the Horse – Planet Gates

Adam Jacobs, contributor
Hipsters love trying to sound like their grandfather’s friends from the ‘30s.  Mail the Horse? Oh, I get it; you’re like the Pony Express . . . completely useless and happily extinct. Have you ever thought about the guy from Mumford and Sons falling ass first onto a steel guitar, basically eating a guitar neck with his butthole? That’s what I would rather listen to. They have a “Kings of Leon before they sucked” sound, which is a good thing, so they got that going for them. Although their vibe is so tired the album should be called “Ambien Dreams.”  Someone tell these guys that they aren’t the Black Crowes and imitation is the sincerest form of no imagination.

Rating: 6 out of 12 cans of PBR! (because they have at least six sounds that they borrow from other bands)
