PREMIERE: The City And Horses - A Thousand Lashes + I Miss It All
The City and Horses is singularly-named Brooklyn songwriter Marc, whose aching, strummy indie-pop could be described by a lesser ear as twee. Not us, Marc! We prefer to focus on the literary bent, the folksy thrust, the chamber strains. His sound may be sweet, but it’s not precious by a mile. Below, a premiere in “A Thousand Lashes,“ and the song that started all the manic pixie pigeonholing, “I Miss It All” (it’s on the Paper Heart soundtrack). Both can be found on I Don’t Want To Dream, out now via Paper Garden Records.
