Gong Gong Gong – Ride Your Horse

 

“Ride Your Horse” is the newest single from Beijing “transnational blues” guitar/bass duo Gong Gong Gong’s upcoming album Phantom Rhythm.   NPR premiered the track, writing “Depending on your ear, the Beijing-based guitar-and-bass duo could sound like The Feelies‘ stuttering post-punk, Bo Diddley‘s rock and roll boogie or Tinariwen‘s droning desert blues. But this unplaceable sound and drummer-less format encourages Gong Gong Gong’s reckless and razor-sharp rhythms to reshape rock and roll.”  Paste, Pop Bollocks, and Raven Sings the Blues all had words to say about it too, and Aquarium Drunkard interviewed the band from Beijing.  I produced Phantom Rhythm with the group in NYC, recording at Seaside Lounge and mixing at Studio Windows.  Phantom Rhythm is out October 4 via Wharf Cat Records – stream the video (directed by bassist Joshua Frank) and pre-order the album now!
