Desolation Horse Shrine Boise
Desolation Horse makes crunchy, sweet, guitar-driven music rooted in pop in a way that takes the listener somewhere much weirder and wilder than they may immediately realize.  These are confidently eclectic songs, “filled with stream-of-consciousness lyrics and twinkly, lo-fi guitars as expansive as the ocean” (NPR).  Alternately based out of Idaho and Oregon, the band, led by multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter Cooper Trail, released their third album, “Biff,” on American Standard Time Records in October 2023.
