Delia Gonzalez – Horse Follows Darkness – DFA

Delia Gonzalez’s second album begins with the exquisite In Through the Light which tempts you into the grey colour of evening ripping your senses with all sorts of provocations. Inspired by American Westerns – the cover referencing Robert Altman’s epic McCabe & Mrs Miller – the proceeding music then trips through rockier moments on Hidden Song, chiming repetitions via the cleverly tilted Roulette, then returning to the breathless beauty evident on the title track: Horse Follows Darkness. The 80’s referencing Vesuvius finishes with a blur of synthesized arpeggios punctuated by classic machines plus suitably moody overtones.

Release: May 5
