Finland - Full Moon 175 - 12/21/10
Hi-Horse is Jani Kämppi, Karin Creutz with help by Pexi Parviainen. They play a low-slung bluesy blend of rock with some terrific songs.
"Ma Chanson" sees Creutz sing sensually to a rather appealing melody. It's an evocative proposition when she sings the chorus in French. "Faust" sees the trio embark
on a journey to the darker realms, all the while playing a suspenseful tune. Kämppi.s lead vocal is sinuous and affecting. "Bloom (Plato's Disco)" is a heavy riffin'
track that the band excel at. Creutz' vocal adds a necessary light touch to make it even better.
"Devil in Disguise" sees them play a complex yet thrilling ode to danger. It's a great album in all.
