We’ve been on White Horse‘s latest stuff all summer; his recent album The Revenant Gospels Vol. III blends the voices of long-dead musicians with heavy, pulsing beats. His mixtape Revelations & Trash was a thugged-out, drugged-out concoction mashing up the underground sounds of groups like Gatekeeper and Death In June with stuff from Waka Flocka Flame and Method Man. Truly sick, truly wonderful. Now the LA producer, who’s also known for his work in the apocalyptic noisefolk group Chelsea Wolfe, has dropped a new remix for us. Taking the light pop of SanFran group Nesting Models, he twists the vocals into something a bit more ghostly, adding fuzzed-out bass for a simple yet effective vibe-downer.
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.
