  • Summary: This is the debut album for the indie duo from Brisbane, Australia.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. Striding forward, Cooper won't let that stop her. She hurts, but her chin scarcely trembles at all.
  2. 70
    Kate Cooper's tales of awkward, broken love and chronic miscommunication don't seem ripe for selling sedans, but her reedy voice and zippy melodic guitar, plus drummer Damon Cox's imperfect harmonies, keep things from getting too depressing.
  3. With drummer Damon Cox, Cooper turns the band's debut into relationship post-mortem, rehashing a split over fuzzed-out riffs, hummable hooks and snarling beats.
  4. 70
    Over skeletal guitar and drums, An Horse balance scruffy musicianship with offbeat melodic beauty as Cooper narrates the day-to-day drama of a flailing relationship.
  5. More often, though, lyrics fall somewhere in the middle, neither particularly offensive to one's sensibilities nor particularly inspiring. But again, it's how An Horse use their chosen tools that makes the difference.
  6. Rearrange Beds, the duo’s debut full-length, features the five EP tunes plus another five that aren’t as strong. While not bad in small doses, the disc has a cumulative grating effect if you listen from start to finish.
