Vinyl Pressing Review

I Break Horses

Denial (Single)

Reviewed by Kasey Bradley on 07.01.2014

"Denial," I Break Horses' first song sing the release of 2011's "Hearts" is lush, bouncy synthpop and probably pretty hard to find outside of Europe - Record Geeks received the 12 inch single a while back and in the time since "Denial" has found a place on the group's latest full-length, "Chiaroscuro." The 12 inch single features a remix of Denial by RX Gribbs on the b-side.

Ratings are based on a scale from 0-10.

Overall Sound:


Both the single and the remix are crisp and radio or club ready. The single features rich bass and big synths without drowning out the beat and vocal touches. Both versions are great examples of forward thinking europop and posses a sort of sprightly sheen that's a little less serious than I Break Horses' other efforts.

Pressing Quality:


No noticeable weaving or warping. The mottled white vinyl is heavy and durable, and has a slightly dirty look that really contrasts with the feel of the song.

Vinyl Noise:


No noticeable hissing or popping. No noticeable vinyl noise.

Overall Artwork:


Aside from the mottled white vinyl, there really isn't much artwork to speak of - the record comes in a single black sleeve somewhere between the weight of a standard interior sleeve and jacket with nothing detailing the album's contents other than a grey sticker.

Overall Extras:


No MP3 download with the copy we received, no insert.
