Cinematic in scope and movement, Horse Latitudes, the startling new album from Jeffrey Foucault, begins the place of reckoning, confronting the end of nature and the end of youth in a series of vivid dreams, unfolding characters from younger life and lovers lost or forgotten against dark fragments of modern time.
A cross-country collision of rock, country, and folk, Horse Latitudes alights with equal grace on full-band ragers and whispered solo pieces, delivering a collection of songs that inhabit the borderlands of heartbreak and memory. Recorded in just three days in Los Angeles, Horse Latitudes features Eric Heywood (Pretenders, Ray Lamontagne) on pedal steel, baritone and electric guitars; Billy Conway (Morphine, Cold Satellite) on drums; Jennifer Condos (Ray Lamontagne, Sam Phillips) on electric bass, and Van Dyke Parks (Lowell George, Brian Wilson, Ry Cooder) on keys and accordion, with backing vocals and cello from Kris Delmhorst; an all-star ensemble that seamlessly merges the ferocity of rock and the honesty of country with the plaintive wonder in Foucault's weathered voice.
