Welcome to the haunted Americana of GEORGIA'S HORSE. Their new EP 'Shepherd' is redolent of the sun-baked vacant lots of Wim Wenders' 'Paris Texas', the gentle (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'.

This five track EP features the skewed and magnetic vision of singer/songwriter Teresa Maldonado but her brittle and skeletal songs are fleshed out by multi-instrumentalist Tiziano Hernandez (bass/guitars), Brad Thomason (drums) and Melly Rose (cello).

Their recent collaboration with hotly tipped Pitchfork favourites and electronic/dub step pioneers VARIOUS PRODUCTIONS ('As It Stops Raining', Fire Records) has certainly influenced the group - the title track and 'Snake & Sparrow', creak and echo as if recorded in a haunted house, on haunted equipment.

From the most basic of set ups, a deeply affecting and subtle beauty is achieved. 'Shepherd' trails the much anticipated debut album by GEORGIA'S HORSE, 'The Mammoth Sessions'.
