HORSE BLANKETS is J. Pace & D. Bilyeu. They're, like, a couple. Pace plays in various louder bands. Bilyeu sings all the time. It's about time they did this. Classic Motown and the Eccentric Soul series provided much inspiration, along with Pace's inevitable menu of psych/prog/noise/etc. This is their first album together, but there will be more.
D. Bilyeu sang. J. Pace played nearly everything, recorded & mixed. Also contributing were Ian Miller (bass), Matthew Pace (piano, trumpet, wurlitzer), and Brien Seyle (violins).
8 songs of motown/soul-inspired psychedelia, complete with fuzz, sound effects, and a healthy sense of humor. Includes covers of Ray Charles' "Busted" and Duran Duran's "Save a Prayer."
