Horse Thieves is a loose-and-rollicking-yet-darkly-country-ish musical assemblage led by Alex Maslansky.

Alex's songs are built of brick & blood and they are held together by evil spirits and Alex sings them like he'll die if he doesn't ... or maybe like they'll let him die if he does. These songs are molecular in their structure, atomic in their monadic constraint. There is not a space in any of them into which you could slide a narrow object.

Horse Thieves' most recent line-up (featured on the SHINES LIKE GOLD live EP) includes Zander Schloss (bouzouki, 12-string acoustic guitar) and 5-Track (electric slide guitar) and Alex on acoustic guitar, songs & singing.

In addition to his Horse Thieves, Alex Maslansky plays electric guitar with Amanda Jo Williams.
