A Thousand Horses - Southernality (2015)
Country, Alternative Rock, Americana | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:45:40 | 104 MB Label: Republic Nashville | Release Year: 2015
A Thousand Horses is a fresh fusion of classic sounds - a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and 'Exile on Main Street'-era Rolling Stones, wrapped up in a modern-country context. The band's Republic Nashville album, Southernality', is as wild and free and powerful as the name A Thousand Horses implies. This is the result of years of a road-doggin' pursuit, determination and an against-the-odds struggle that found its rewards by bringing great music to the people.
Rainbow Theatre - Fantasy Of Horses (1976)

The fact is that this album is one of the best achieved and better constructed Progressive Operas ever released, especially when it comes to the 2 longer tracks in the album. The acoustic piano, sometimes close to the works of classical composers such as Stravinsky and Wagner, is perfectly combined with a thoughtful wind and metal section, with a rare sense of beauty and perfect interplay. The string arrangements are thrown in the mix to form an even tighter body of work. Rebecca and Caption for the City Night Life are set on the progressive jazz/rock side of the band, while doing it with orchestral instruments, which adds loads of originality to the result.
Jan Svankmajer: Rakvickarna aka Punch & Judy (1966)

Punch & Judy is Svankmajer's third film effort, and a triumph of surrealist satire. Whereas his two previous films had been too strange for their own good, this third film stands as a strong testament to Svakmajer's blossoming ability as a filmmaker.
The opening sequence is an important element to the film, showing a clockwork band of creepy-looking toy monkeys who seem to set the tone for the goofy animalistic black comedy that is about to unfold. Contrasted by this clockwork band of misfits are metallic clockwork contraptions of working-class families (covered with rust and paint chips) in a psychotic drone of mechanical repetition. After this, a "swinging ship" carousal sways back and forth to swaying images of decadent childish cherubs. Finally, a series of frightening carousal horses drone by the camera and after a collision-edited sequence of wooden horses, we are presented with a puppet stage.
