John Vanderslice: Pale Horse

 
This song, "Pale Horse", is so rich in detail -- from lyric, to music, to production -- that it somehow seems longer than the twenty seconds shy of 3 minutes that it actually is. Musician John Vanderslice draws on the dark side when creating his rich music, heavily influenced by noirish films his songs are vignettes from the shadows, draped in a sonic black velvet.

Don't get the wrong idea, Vanderslice does not operate in some weird sub-genre of music, it's simply his unique vision and presentation that makes his 'blackened' indie pop stand alone atop a hill. A hill being charged by Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock, Low Skies Christopher Salveter and others -- whose faces are concealed by velvet shadow.
