Recorded at night in an empty warehouse (while he worked at a men's homeless shelter during the day), Brother Dege's second album "How to Kill a Horse" is a tour de force artwork that ranges from barn burners to ancient Delta meditations to Babylonian junkyard jams that explore the dark underbelly of what it is to be a man in the modern world. Influences include: Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad, Ry Cooder, Norman Mailer, Henry Miller, Sonic Youth, Black Sabbath, Blind Willie Johnson, Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, Jackson Pollock and Don Quixote. Like Hemingway at his finest, "How to Kill a Horse" goes deep into the prison rodeo of man's heart, confronting the darker, flawed side of the self while going full-aggro in the existential blast furnace of the modern world, wrestling with men's roles as providers, protectors, partners, lovers, warriors, peacekeepers, whatever. "How to Kill a Horse" is a massive shot across the bow to riff heads, songwriters, and Americana enthusiasts around the world. It's a game changer that launches the whole mess of roots music out of the vinyl dustbins and into the 21st century.
