White Horse knows a thing or two about darkness. The LA-based musician is a member of Chelsea Wolfe‘s band, one of the best nu-goth acts to throw shade. Under the name White Horse, he’s been steadily releasing a flow of EPs called The Revenant Gospels. They’re all worth looking into, but it’s on the third series here that he’s found the perfect combination of witched-out mystery and avant-pop appeal.
Blending the pitch-shifted vocals of dead musicians with original, bass-heavy electronic compositions, he crafts a blackly beautiful landscape of heaving funeral-procession melodies; a bleak tribute to that which once was alive. Listen to and download the entire EP for free here.
We’re not entirely sure what they are made out of and they are not even for sale, but we are sure if you ask Julian who also is an absolutely amazing illustrator (http://www.inprnt.com/gallery/julian_callos/) that contributes to LA Weekly on a regular basis, he might reconsider.
On his Society6 profile Julian states: “I wanted to give something special to some friends of mine this past Christmas, so I decided on some hand-made gifts. We have our own "tribe" and each person has a spirit animal, so I made everyone a sculpture of his or her spirit animal. It was a total labour of love and I’m super excited to share with everybody!“
You can check out the whole animal gang here. Our favourites are the ducking black fox, the twisted weasel and the crow.
