Hassle Fest, Went There

ON STAGE: HORSE LORDS @ HASSLE FEST 6

by

ON STAGE. HORSE LORDS. Some of Baltimore’s underground best. We at the Hassle have been engaged in a torrid love affair with this bunch and their deep bag of poly-rhythms for ages now. Obsession along the Eastern seaboard. HORSE LORDS readily offer an invitation to dive deeply into their music. This invite also offers the chance to dance, and/ or the opportunity to become lost in some of the headiest & yes, dank, jams imaginable. Look HERE of HERE for some of the past digi-ink that we here have splattered onto the face of the internet in regard to thee HORSE LORDS. Fill in the back story with that. In the here and now digest this funk that was visually captured and conducted by Boston vid man with the most CASEY HERZ. LIAM BEAUDOIN, Beverly, MA’s own, is to blame for the great sounding audio. HASSLE FEST 6 was full of larger than life, and mind searing performances, but without doubt HORSE LORDS’ set is one that I’ve heard discussed and recalled over and over by person after person since fest’s end. They know how to get into your brain, they have fashioned their own key for entry, and they will come and go as they please. Riotous. Intense. Krautrock/ jam band/ West African flavored psych/ OTHER supreme. Casey will be rolling out a slew of these ON STAGE vids (so LOOK SHARP, and check back in), that as you can see were shot in gorgeous black & white. Shot while risking life and limb on a singular mission to create these intense and intimate visual documents. Here, he definitely caught some of the vibes that were flowing during the wonder that was Hassle Fest. Can’t wait to see what else he has in store.
