Explore the Rambling Americana of Tin Horses at KFN Nov. 11

Everybody knows Kiel Everett can rock the big stage playing bass for local hot shots Purling Hiss, but on his own time, he leads the band Tin Horses, who will be sharing a stage with Promise Land Sound and Zachary Cale tonight at Kung Fu Necktie. In Tin Horses, Everett takes a slightly different approach to the vintage rock ‘n’ roll sound. There is still a healthy reverence for ’70s titans like Clapton and Neil Young, who gave the guitar an immortal voice, but when Everett takes up a classic six-string and principal creative authority, his music takes a distinctly twangy shape that differentiates it from Purling Hiss and other contemporary psychedelia-infused acts. The group borrows a larger portion of its sound from acts like The Eagles and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and refracts it in a similar way to more recent torchbearers like Wilco, choosing to explore rambling Americana qualities. As is to be expected of any band rooted in ’70s rock, there are frequent movements into guitar-focused interludes, but the solos tend to be more expressive and poignant than they are shreddy or virtuosic. As an added incentive to attend this evening, Tin Horses will undoubtedly be showing off its new repertoire of songs from their latest release Mental Flowers. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N.
