JASON ISBELL has released his dazzling new album The Nashville Sound. THE 400 UNIT is back on album the first time since 2011. And we’re ready to celebrate.

“We at Horizon remain super-energized by what Jason Isbell brings, the sound of his crack band, the 400 Unit, and what this all means to the music scene. Hell, he just sold out 5 nights at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in less than two hours! It seems the wider world has discovered (at last) that so-called country music goes way beyond formulaic “get drunk-cheatin’-pickup-truck-Wal-Mart”-style country.

The ragged, roots-rockin’ BANDITOS have returned with a new album, and they’ll be playing a release show right dang here at Horizon on Saturday, July 8th, right before their RADIO ROOM show that night!

The ragged, roots-rockin’ BANDITOS have returned with a new album, and they’ll be playing a release show right dang here at Horizon on Saturday, July 8th, right before their RADIO ROOM show that night!

After spending much of the last two years on the road, relentlessly showcasing their critically acclaimed 2015 self-titled debut album, the six bandmates of Banditos regrouped in late 2016 at Plum Creek Sound Studios in Dripping Springs, TX and democratically poured out sonic influences and emotionally charged personal experiences for their new album Visionland. Produced by Israel Nash and Ted Young, the Birmingham/Nashville-based group’s second full-length has one foot firmly planted in reality as the other tip-toes in and out of mental complexities, self-perception and altered-state illusions.The results are revealing, exhilarating and profound. The album-titled track reveals these defining, cohesive thematic intricacies.

The infectiously melodic, magically eccentric indie-rockers ELF POWER are coming to the Upstate, playing a brief in-store show at Horizon Records on Friday, July 14th before their full performance at The Spinning Jenny in Greer that night!

The infectiously melodic, magically eccentric indie-rockers ELF POWER are coming to the Upstate, playing a brief in-store show at Horizon Records on Friday, July 14th before their full performance at The Spinning Jenny in Greer that night!

The opening track “Halloween Out Walking” combines minimal and beautiful folk rock arrangements with otherworldly Moog synthesizer gurglings to awe-inspiring effect. Other highlights include “Watery Shreds”, a piano ballad that transforms itself into an explosive an unexpected distorted guitar drone freakout, sounding like an unlikely marriage of avant-garde keyboardist Laurie Anderson and drone metallers Sunn 0)) . Songs like the title track and “Cycling Aimlessly” are classic fuzzed out melodic rock songs the likes of which the band has become known for, while songs like “Gorging on the Feast” explore a jazzy, melancholy terrain before descending into a shredding heavy rock assault.

JOHN MORELAND brings the roadhouse rock and heartache of his new album BIG BAD LUV right dang here on Monday, July 17th, right before his GREY EAGLE show the next day!

JOHN MORELAND brings the roadhouse rock and heartache of his new album BIG BAD LUV right dang here on Monday, July 17th, right before his GREY EAGLE show the next day!

While Moreland isn’t exactly copping a rosy outlook on these songs, there is more of a positive vibe that’s in keeping with the upbeat music. “Old Wounds” doesn’t avoid talking about the hard times, but it also advises to “find the heaven following the hurt.” On “Salisaw Blue,” a noose hanging down from the sky is balanced out with a neon sign flashing out the album’s title phrase.

RECORD STORE DAY 2017 has come and gone, and what else can we say other than THANK YOU, we love you and let’s do it all again next year!

We’re speechless, which doesn’t happen often around here. We just had one of our biggest Record Store Day celebrations EVER, without all the ROSANNE CASH & PEARL JAM buzz that blessed last year’s RSD, or the once-in-a-lifetime JASON ISBELL show that highlighted 2015. From the fun-filled vinyl rush at 9am to the steady love til 10pm, to the rainy day shoppers who came out on Sunday, Record Store Day’s 1oth anniversary event was simply amazing. Y’all rock, we’re grateful. Dere it is.

Bluegrass-jazzers OLD SALT UNION are comin’ to town THIS THURSDAY! They’ll play an in-store at Horizon Records in The Bohemian Cafe at 4:30, then head over to THE SPINNING JENNY!

Old Salt Union is known for playing music by their own set of rules. While the men who make up the group are not complete rebels, they are certainly focused on exposing people to a purer, more exciting, and more original form of music. Drawing influence from Bill Monroe, Sam Bush and Del McCoury, to jazz great Bill Evans and Composer Danny Elfman, it’s obvious the group has a unique and broad genetic make-up. What makes Old Salt Union special is their ability to further explore the jazz and blues roots of bluegrass in a mature and refreshing manner. With in-depth musical compositions, a catchy hook, and a high- energy metaphorical punch to the gut, they are truly front runners in the new generation of string music.
