minihorse's Ben Collins has lived an entire lifetime. From working alongside some of Michigan's most talented indie rockers to traveling the world as practical bodyguard to world-famous social humanoid robot Sophia, he's accrued a breadth of experience that most people dream of—all before his band minihorse released their first album, no less. Living Room Art is equal parts dreamy and disturbing, nailing a softly psychedelic sound not unlike indie heroes Grandaddy and Olivia Tremor Control. The trio's sharp blend of crunchy guitars, wavering atmospherics, and Collins' cushion-soft vocals feels totally unique and revitalizing right now, creating a world as tactile and fascinating as Collins' life itself.
