7Horse - Songs for a Voodoo Wedding

by Kevin Wierzbicki

Astute fans may recognize the two men who make up 7Horse, guitarist Joie Calio and vocalist/drummer Phil Leavitt as being longtime members of the band Dada ("Dizz Knee Land".) But the guys have changed horses, er, musical styles, and have been making a glorious noise as 7Horse for a few years now.

This sophomore effort follows up successful debut Let the 7Horse Run and it's surprise hit single "Meth Lab Zoso Sticker" with an earthy batch of blues-rockin' cosmic Americana that will appeal to fans of other duos like the Black Keys, or going back a ways, Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper.

Inspired by a trip to New Orleans and Leavitt's attending of an actual voodoo wedding ceremony, Songs for a Voodoo Wedding features the spectral blues of "Before the Flood," a little Rolling Stones-style rocking in "Carousel Bar" and a couple of songs bound to be anthems; the naughty-naughty sing-along "Some MF" and the slightly goofy ode to marijuana, "A Friend in Weed," which has been released as a single.

Another tune with a bit of a buzz is "Flying High (With No ID)" which recalls trying to catch a plane out of New Orleans after pulling an all-nighter in the French Quarter and sucking on a THC-laced lollipop to keep the good times rolling.

"Flying High´┐Ż" has also been released as a single and like the lollipop, it should do the trick until the album drops on June 10.
