Bet on Race Horses being your new favourite band in 2010. Having pulled off the enviable feat of producing a four-track, 7” concept EP Man In My Mind, they have just unleased their full-length, fully realised album, Goodbye Falkenburg, which is conceived as a collage of a salty old sailor’s life memories: “stories of good times and bad, of girls and champagne, of loneliness and longing.”
Bursting with ideas, zig-zagging between musical reference points from The Beatles to Suicide, this is an ambitious –and brilliant – debut, the place where Barbershop meets post-rock via folk, oompah, psychedelia and pop. “We felt bored with all modern music,” says singer Meilyr Jones. “We wanted to make our fifth album first, if you know what I mean.”
