Synaesthesia suffering, London based, Bulgarian trio Drop Out Venus yesterday put up a re-written version of Smog’s I Break Horses. I was initially sceptical, was this ‘re-writing’ merely an excuse to be uncreative?
Fortunately not. Iva Moskovich turned Bill Callaghan (of Smog)’s tale of a man’s chauvinistic behaviour on it’s head and takes it down a much darker road, suitably calling it I Kill Foxes. Callaghan’s warm guitar tone is substituted for lo-fi guitars and a screeching, aggressive chorus. I still haven’t decided whether I appreciate the brazen or subtle approach more, however Drop Out Venus’ version does stand up on it’s own as a fantastically emotive, chaotic song.
Also, if you’re super quick, Germany Germany is giving away all his music away for free on bandcamp!! Go check him out. He’s amazing.
