SAD HORSE, HARSH SUNSHINE, PROBLEMS
(Valentine's, 232 SW Ankeny) If it is unjust to judge a book by its cover, is it equally unfair to judge a band by their name? Solely based on the name Sad Horse, I assumed their set would entail sullen downer music. However, after a bit of research and investigation, I realized Sad Horse makes anything but the sad bastard music I anticipated from their moniker. In fact, rather than being gloomy, the local band seems downright pissed off as they trot along with hammering garage punk that is both guttural and rebellious. This month, the duo will release a 7-inch featuring six short-lived, crazed anthems on Mississippi Records as part of their Music from North Portland series. EM BROWNLOWE
