Thee Silver Mt. Zion - Horses in the Sky (2005)

Horses in the Sky (2005) is the fourth album by the Canadian post-rock band Silver Mt. Zion, this time under the alias Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band. This is the first Silver Mt. Zion release to feature lyrics (an aspect of the band distinguishing it from parent group Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on every track. On its record label page, the band describes the album as "6 busted 'waltzes' for world wars 4 thru 6", noting that "first song's about war and drug addiction, fourth song's about kanada, and the rest of it is all love songs". Track 5, the song "Hang on to Each Other" was recorded "next to a campfire by the river", "at Garfield's fire pit". - Wikipedia
