Following the magical debut "The Mammoth Sessions", the new album dfrom GEORGIA'S HORSE is a study in heartbreak and loneliness set amidst the backdrop of the vast landscapes of American Southwest.

Drawing influences from her perennial favourites BAUHAUS, as well as NATACHA ATLAS' exotic "Mish Maoul" and the psych folk of early WILL OLDHAM.

Most of the songs were initially composed on her much loved piano which was in need of some tuning.

Having not been tuned since around 1992, the piano had been moved from place to place too many times to count but lent a fractured beauty to her creations.

From the early versions on the piano, she started to venture into the more electronic side of music mixing styles and sounds to create a marvellously eclectic collection of songs.

Maldonado began writing "Weather Codes" during a messy relationship and amassed over forty songs, which she whittled down to fourteen forlorn and haunting tracks.

The relationship started during her back and forth travels between Texas and Louisiana, and the album sees her bringing the landscape vividly to life.

The little towns and their secrets. With tall tales that can be heard in tracks such as "A Long Ride Home" and "Weather Codes Part 3".
