Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses
Oxford Art Factory
July 19, 2015
Pizzazz. Omph. Charisma.
If your music depends entirely on that, the dependency is too great.
Tex Perkins has been in the game for 27 years. He oozes the aforementioned qualities, yet his music stands for itself.
Almost three decades of versatility and effortlessly moving between a range of genres and incarnations.
The Dark Horses is one of them.
The country, moody, groovy, bluesy one, which he seems to have felt most at home with over the last five years.
Tunnel at the End of the Light is the fifth Dark Horses album.
A coherent concept album of sorts.
Musings on the need to be.
A slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of melancholy and slow smoldering songs, great and simple images in whose presence one's heart first opened and then got bruised.
Comprised of accomplished musicians with each having a career in their own right, spearheaded by Charlie Owen, one of Australia's most revered guitarists and accomplished multi-instrumentalists, the melange and collective sound of the Dark Horses is bigger than the mere sum of its constituents.
Refined, laid back entertainment for a Sydney Sunday winter evening.
