Horse Jumper of Love, “Bagel Breath”

JP Basileo

If you could imagine a soundtrack following you, like a spirit, as you walk, oppressed, through a drearily rainy day, it might sound like Horse Jumper of Love’s new song, “Bagel Breath,” off their forthcoming S/T LP, out March 11 on Gawk and Disposable America. Trudging guitar comes in heavier than wet socks, and the immediate twang of a pulled chord, along with the stop-motion tempo of the song, pulls you down into the Boston trio’s beautiful bleakness, and continues through the song’s entirety. The instruments cut out at one point, however, and it feels as though the song steps inside, out of the rain. Dimitri Giannopoulos’ tinny vocals are left, still soaked to the bone—you can hear the unsettling sound of the saliva separating at the sides of his mouth as it creaks open, as though he’s whispering in your ear, lamenting about “Bagel breath in the morning.” Grey light from the overcast skies streaks in through the window shades, and the outside rain rages on.
