Review: Carpet Of Horses – Carpet Of Horses

Carpet Of Horses is a project founded by Tobin J Stewart and friends which began in Toronto but is now based in Berlin. Their first release spans a mere four tracks but already the potential of their eerie brand of folk rock appears quite exciting.

‘Take Hold’ begins like acoustic/country rock but soon the song mutates in to something altogether more sinister and turns into ambient folk. It’s a pattern repeated for ‘Night Song’ where rustic sounds are balanced by a sense of chilling etherealism. In contrast, ‘Fall Song’ is the most grounded track with female backing vocals to match Stewart’s appealing tones. Undoubtedly, the most dramatic moment – courtesy of ‘Train Tracks’ – is saved to last where the group reveal a dark side only hinted at on the first three pieces of music.

The slow pace and downbeat nature of this EP won’t appeal to everyone. However, its expansive production hints at an ambition which stretches beyond the indie folk margins.

    I really like the strategy of the at house package and it has gotten very great testimonials but my issue is that I don’t enjoy their limited color choices.

    Can I use any model of UV gel with it?
