91.3 KBCS & Tractor Tavern Present: Dead Horses, Mara Connor

  • Dead Horses

    Dead Horses

    Americana

    At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, ‘My Mother the Moon,’ a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

    Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos’ songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she’s endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery.

    ‘My Mother the Moon’ is Dead Horses’ third album, which NPR Music has described as “evocative, empathetic storytelling" and Rolling Stone has called "a beautifully uncluttered collection of songs,” earning Dead Horses a spot in the latter’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know in 2018” list. No Depression relates Vos’ “aching, haunting vocals and tales of working-class men and women” to “lullabies sung to the lonely and lost”, and has already cited the album as one of the “Best Roots Albums of 2018 (So Far)”.

    Singer-Songwriter

    LA native / singer-songwriter Mara Connor just finished recording her debut album to tape in Nashville with Andrija Tokic (producer of Alabama Shakes) featuringduets with Langhorne Slim & Joseph Arthur.

    “Southern California singer-songwriter Mara Connor pays tribute to her roots with her delightfully bright debut single, ‘No Fun.’ Connor recorded the track in Nashville, and tinges of country blend seamlessly with Sixties and Seventies beach-pop here. It’s a promising sign for this newcomer, and all that retro flavor never stops this song from sounding like right now.”
    — Brittany Spanos, ROLLING STONE

    “Playing brightly deliberate strumming and briskly grand strings against Connor’s bell-clear voice, ‘No Fun’ is a portrait of resolve masking anticipated rejection.”
    — Maura Johnston, ROLLING STONE

    “‘No Fun’ is also an elegant charmer - Connor’s drawn-out, yet lucid vocals are set against a majestic string arrangement and gleaming jangly guitars, wrapped around a melody that a band like Big Star could’ve written in their more tender moments. ”
    — Juan Rodriguez, THE DELI MAGAZINE

    “‘No Fun’ is the heart-melting introduction to her debut album, arriving in 2019... the title track, strings-swept and swoon-worthy, a confessional that’s equal parts girl-group pop and ’70s AM radio finery, her buttery voice somewhere between Allie Crow Buckley and Lana Del Rey.”
    — Kevin Bronson, BUZZBANDS

    “Despite its title, you will greatly enjoy the new single from Mara Connor. This marks the LA-based artist’s debut, ahead of an album that she has been working on with Langhorne Slim and Joseph Arthur. If it’s anything like the lead track, it will be a moody record with emphatic lyrics and overlapping melodies.”
    — Zöe Elaine, THE 405
