Milwaukee (by way of Oshkosh) Americana duo Dead Horses was recently featured on Jim Hanke’s always-excellent Vinyl Emergency podcast. Fresh off the release of the band’s great My Mother The Moon and during a rare break from their breakneck touring schedule, Sarah Vos and Daniel Wolff sat down with the Milwaukee-based host to talk about their unlikely meeting, early practices in a downtown Oshkosh “vitamin shop,” how the name Dead Horses came to be, the importance of closely examining test presses, Dan losing his phone in Florida, and their new record. Along the way, the duo played a few songs.
Dead Horses decided to release two of those songs as part of a digital EP. Live From Vinyl Emergency features versions of “Darling Dear” and Turntable”—both from My Mother The Moon—played on the podcast. Aside from giving listeners intimate, stripped-down renditions of two new songs, Dead Horses will also give 100 percent of the EP’s sales to RAICES, an organization which assists underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees with low-to-no cost legal services.
You can listen to Live From Vinyl Emergency below and download the two-song release for $1.99 at Dead Horses’ Bandcamp page.
