Music: Horse Thief Premiere "Little Dust" Video



07/30/14 - Buy Horse Thief's latest album.

More Info From The Publicist: "I had written a short film script called "Ordained" that I had been sitting on and it just felt like the perfect pairing to Cameron's songwriting. Cameron and I really worked together seamlessly in the creative process and I knew this role could be perfect for Luis [Bordonada]." – Matt Bizer, Director and owner of Robot Fondue

Bella Union has just released Fear In Bliss, the debut album from recent signings HORSE THIEF. This youthful band is a purveyor of a panoramic yet nuanced sound, flowing from intimate to anthemic, the mood from vibrant to contemplative, with front-man Cameron Neal’s lyrics ranging from confessional to metaphorical. The result evokes the wide-open spaces of America’s Midwest but infuses the sense of grit and wonderment with edgier emotions.

Horse Thief, originally founded in Denton, TX, moved to Oklahoma City to attend the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma, from which they recently graduated. The band subsequently signed with the Flaming Lips’ management and soon came to the attention of Bella Union. Though Fear In Bliss was conceived at Horse Thief’s Oklahoma headquarters the band decided to record the album in LA, “to leave our comfort zone of Oklahoma”, and producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver) has helped the band fuse their renowned stage performance with studio quality.

The over-arching theme to Fear In Bliss is “finding yourself and what you believe in, and finding the comfort in acknowledging fear. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression which comes out a lot on the new album. But when everything gets rough, I think there’s always a way to fix it. The biggest thing for me is to give comfort to people, to shed light on the truth that someone is feeling the same way as them.".

Somewhat appropriately, having originated in Denton, TX, Horse Thief toured with fellow Dentonians and label mates Midlake throughout February, on their UK / European tour. They just came off a US tour with The Paper Kites.

Fear In Bliss is out now on Bella Union.

Music: KahBang Festival Leaving Bangor For Portland - Portland Accepts With Open Arms


kahbang portland


07/17/14 - The rumors have just been confirmed. Due to slow pre-sales and some budget constraints, the KahBang festival has decided to move to Portland, Maine. CEO, Josh Gass, says there were a variety of factors which led him to make the decision, but ultimately it was the City of Bangor's decision not to allow camping on the waterfront that finally pushed him to make the move.

So much for KahBang in Bangor becoming like SXSW in Austin. Looks like Portland is going to reap those rewards now...
