Horses Do It Better not only marks the debut of Manchester-based outfit Stranger Than Horses, but also Lagoon Recordings. As debuts go, it's quietly confident. There's something undeniably eccentric about opener "Walking In Harlem", which laces a quirky, druggy spoken word vocal ("if you will suffer my soul, I will lick your funky emotions" being a choice excerpt) over a warm groove that sits somewhere between Idjuts style dub disco and hazy deep house. "Peach Beach Disco" is a far more muscular affair that gleefully pays tribute to Giorgio Moroder, Patrick Cowley, and legions of sci-fi loving 1980s Italo-disco producers.
