A Free EP from The Horns of Happiness

The Horns of Happiness are in transition. A new West coast home, new member, and a new EP. What better way to celebrate than by offering the good people a free download? The songs here speak of transition. Becoming one with yourself and your surroundings, returning “home,” and facing the “light” are the three major themes. These tunes come from a time just before this transition and were waiting for us upon the arrival on the other side. Look for new show announcements and recording over the next year.

THE HORNS OF HAPPINESS Debut Limited Edition St. Ives Release

THE HORNS OF HAPPINESS return to the recorded world with their first release since 2007′s What Spills Like Thread EP. Here we find the band in concept mode, balancing its pounding rhythms and airy melodies to create a soundtrack piece entitled Weathering Alterations.

The band’s normally speedy and structure-damaged tunes begin to stretch out, allowing repetition and space to create new moods. Originally performed as an accompaniment to the J. Shelley Harrison installation piece “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” the recording focuses on the reaction of the psyche to unexpected changes in environment. While this is not the true follow-up to the band’s only full-length album, 2004′s A Sea As A Shore, the record is a moody, rocking, and nonsensical song cycle.

As with all St. Ives releases, this album is only available digitally and as hand-made limited edition vinyl (only 200 copies). Find more info and order Weathering Alterations HERE.

New HORNS OF HAPPINESS 12″ available for pre-order

Horns Of Happiness provide the two sides to the second half of their newnew sound with “What Spills Like Thread”. With the follow-up 12″ to last year’s “Would I Find Your Psychic Guideline”, they’re now navigating the waters of hypnotic, organ-driven thump rock. On this record, the HoH have expanded into a trio, with new member Elaina Morgan providing the bottom end to the disjointed fuzz of Aaron Deer and Shelly Harrison’s organ/drum combo. Played out in two extended jams, side A evokes ESG on the dance floor with Can at an absinthe-fueled afterparty, while side B is a woozy pop-drone undulation.
