Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

Lovelace

Only skin 'Deep.'


Drama

Rod Lott
In telling the story of X-rated superstar Linda Lovelace, the biopic Lovelace poses an interesting structure. Its first half makes her brief pornographic life seem like it's all bells and fireworks; only after 45 minutes pass do co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffery Friedman go back to fill in details conveniently glossed over, casting a rather ominous veil over what we've already seen.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss


Indie

Zach Hale
Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.
