An Horse
$10

Australian duo An Horse sailed across the ocean on the back of their wonderful debut, 2009's Rearrange Beds. With guitarist Kate Cooper's lightly curdled vocals and drummer Damon Cox's steady timekeeping, the pair made a sound that was addictive in its simplicity: poppy without being pandering, brash but not invasively so. With this year's follow-up, Walls, An Horse is continuing their course of writing smart, sharp songs that sweetly refuse to break the mold. If Walls isn't as fresh as Rearrange Beds, and if An Horse's odder corners sound slightly smoothed out, there's still much on the new record that'll get attached to that interior space in between your ears and your heart—particularly on the lovely title track (with its reassurance of "just sit tight, it will be all right") and in the clanging guitar that anchors the album-opening fanfare of "Dressed Sharply."
