16 HORSEPOWER - Yours Truly

“Influenced by folk’s more whacked out, gloomy, voodoo-visioned forebears, 16 Horsepower … narrate their haunting campfire-punk yarns without a modern-day care in the world. Instead, David Eugene and his melancholia-drenched posse of LA dreamers prefer the dark grandeur that only comes with mournful swathes of countrified guitar, of heavy-hearted violins, pianos and accordions, of lonesome banjo-picking and Ennio Morricone tautness. Add a dash of Dylan-esque roots-philosophy and the result is a forlorn dustbowl saloon bar where Nick Cave woefully sinks bourbons with the Gun Club only moments after a loved one’s funeral parade. … Sometimes, you just have to accept that there’s, ahem, nothing as pure as folk.” (NME on the album Secret South in 2000)

10 χρόνια μετά την διθυραμβική κριτική του NME για το Secret South, η Glitterhouse με υπερηφάνεια παρουσιάζει το “Yours, Truly, μια συλλογή από κλασικά τραγούδια και χαμένους θυσαυρούς των 16 Horsepower.

Το πρώτο cd της συλλογής είναι ένα πραγματικό “Best of”. Fans και λάτρεις της μουσικής απ’ όλο τον κόσμο ψήφισαν μέσω διαφόρων sites τα αγαπημένα τους τραγούδια των 16 Horsepower.

Το δεύτερο cd της συλλογής συγκεντρώνει 13 τραγούδια που δεν είχαν ποτέ συμπεριληφθεί σε επίσημο άλμπουμ . Single B-Sides, Demo versions, radio sessions – τραγούδια που ακόμα και ο πιο «άπληστος» fan μπορεί να μην έχει στη συλλογή του.

Κυκλοφορεί και σε διπλό βινύλιο 180 γραμμαρίων.
