Nine Horses Money For All
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: Samadhisound
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
Nine Horses is the blanket moniker for David Sylvian's collaborations with brother Steve Jansen and Burnt Friedman, and Money For All is a mish-mash EP of new tracks, versions, and Friedman remixes from a variety of sympathetic artists like Stina Nordenstam, Atom TM, and Keith Lowe. There are interesting things going on here, not least in the subtle tensions between Sylvian's grace and sophistication and a more unexpected (and overt) sense of personal/political anger and anxiety. Even if this tension doesn't quite develop (or regress) into out-and-out discord, it feels wholly, unreservedly appropriate at this point in time.
