A Formal Horse – Meat Mallet – 180 Gram, Transparent Orange, Colored Vinyl, LP, Plane Groovy, 2022

A Formal Horse’s second album Meat Mallet finds the quirky avant-rock quartet once more working with veteran producer Rob Aubrey (Big Big Train, IQ). Limited 180g transparent orange vinyl – 250 copies worldwide – in single sleeve with a full colour lyric insert. Building on the song-based, violent whimsey that has been the band’s trademark, the line-up of Hayley McDonnell (Vocals), Benjamin Short (Guitars), Russell Mann (Bass Guitars) and Mike Stringfellow (Drums) return with a selection of 12 spicy songs, all co-written by the band remotely in 2020.
