REVIEW
By Ross Watson  (Editor rating: ***)
There's an overwhelming air of traditional Americana in the opening moments of the second Georgia's Horse LP: Apple's combination of dirty guitar licks, chain-gang percussion and sorrowful vocals all seem to be built around the intention of taking listeners into the deep Southwest. Whether it's over the ethereal wave of Westlake or the funereal disco-beat of Thistlebomb, lead singer-songwriter Teresa Maldonado's captivating croon is the constant.
Each song oozes with tortured loneliness; some movements are moving and creatively pieced together (Ginger, Strep Throat), but there are uninspired moments which exploit common genre tropes. The repetitive, piano-driven Fancy is too cartoony and cliché, and both parts of the title track are plodding and predictable. These are small missteps which don't detract from the crushing moodiness of the more intricately layered tracks; for the most-part, Weather Codes brings a startling sense of wonder to a genre which is often oversimplified by younger, hipper acts.

'Weather Codes', the new album from Georgia's Horse will be released on a special LP + CD format this summer. Georgia's Horse is Texan Teresa Maldonado, and Weather Codes is her first record since 2009's 'The Mammoth Sessions'.
Texas is a graveyard and The Lone Star State is full of ghosts. Out on the road to Old El Paso lies the Rattlesnake Bomber Base near a town called Peyote. Once the home of fleets of B29 bombers and the plane called Enola Gay as well as many thousands of military personnel, it now stands empty. The only tenants are lizards and snakes. Even the rusted and rotted hulks of planes have been carted off by junk men and souvenir hunters. The roar of the war effort has been replaced by the whisper of the wind. A gentle absence of action. This is just one of several thousand abandoned settlements or ghost towns in the West Texan desert but the haunted Americana of georgia's Horse sounds like it could have come from any of them.
Their debut album 'Mammouth Sessions' is redolent of sun-baked vacant lots, cracked runways, drifting tumble weed and dull orange rust. This collection of songs all sound like the aftermath of some emotionally violent event that has just left stillness and melancholia in its place. There are echoes of the (ex pat) Americana of The New Pornographers, a light dusting of the folk psychedelia of Smog and the torrid and threatening country death songs of PJ Harvey's 'To Bring You My Love'.
These 13 songs are anchored round the skewed and magnetic vision of singer/songwriter Teresa Maldonado and their brittle and skeletal songs are fleshed out by multi-instrumentalist Tiziano Hernandez (bass/guitars), Brad Thomason (drums) and Melly Rose (cello). But that's not to say that this recording sounds like it was handled by some kind of your mother's your brother, lives in a barn hillman. One of many stand out tracks, 'Snake & Sparrow', creaks and echoes as if recorded in a haunted house, on haunted equipment. And the title track briefly effloresces violently as if the ghost of the Enola Gay were bringing its terrible cargo home, before returning to gentleness once more. From the most basic of set ups, a deeply affecting and subtle beauty is achieved.
