Released last year by New York based Northern Spy Records, Interventions is the closest we've come to realizing our musical vision in record form. It contains all of the elements: a blend of chaotic but controlled performance; musical synthesis across far flung genres; a nearly compulsive drive to experiment; and a desire to do things in as DIY a manner as possible (in this case by doing most of the engineering, mixing, and production ourselves).
Some praise for Interventions:
Philip Sherburne writes in his review for Pitchfork Media that, "[t]his is a band that believes that experimental music has the potential to be more than merely aesthetic, and every one of their choices—like taking apart their instruments and rebuilding them according to an alternate musical logic—speaks to a desire to upend the status quo." Writing in The Wire, Tristan Bath calls Interventions "an artistic breakthrough," while The New York Times' Ben Ratliff described the album as "shivering with energy." And Sasha Frere-jones writes in the Village Voice that "Horse Lords work loops against each other until you feel rhythms that you don't want to have to count....the joy rises, though, when the band lock gears and roll hard through their chutes and ladders." Interventions also appeared on several of 2016's year end best-of lists, including The Wire, Red Bull Music Academy, The Baltimore City Paper, WTMD, and The Observer.
