Touch̩ Amor̩e "...to the beat of a dead horse" LP
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Touche Amore set themselves against the glamour and greed of their hometown culture with "...To The Beat Of A Dead Horse," the passionate debut LP and CD. Where Touche Amore's demo 7" (No Sleep Records) was full of promise, "...To The Beat Of A Dead Horse" feels fully realized: the guitars bend and weave but always maintain their drive, the rhythms are frequently off kilter but never off-time and the vocals are screamed at the edge of breaking up but they're always exciting, pleasing even. Features guest vocals by Geoff Rickly (Thursday) and Jeff Eaton (Modern Life Is War); split release with Rickly's Collect Records.
For fans of: La Dispute, Pianos Become the Teeth, Defeater
