The City And Horses

Previously seen in one of our favorite episodes of BTR Hear & There, Brooklyn/Philly band The City And Horses are back for a visit to the studio to share more tunes. Lead by songwriter Marc Louis, this genre-hopping project gets compared to the likes of The Velvet Underground, Belle and Sebastian, and Jonathan Richman for its smart, twisting indie pop songs — along with the inevitable Jethro Tull tags thanks to the presence of a flute. Currently weaving tales of “the sadomasochism of anxiety disorders, the real or imagined simplicity of the 1990s, and lovingly loveless relationships,” the group rarely performs live and never tours, but when they do, it’s well worth seeing in action.

Featured song: “Whip”
