about

'Horska' is a b-sides companion EP to 2011's 'Constellation' album, which Gypsophilia recorded at Montreal's Hotel2Tango with noted indie producer Howard Bilerman.

The title track, composed by the band's resident Jamaican music expert Alec Frith, is a wry and rollicking ride that plays with superimposing a Jewish hora over a ska riddim - hence the title. A Frith-produced dub mix is also included as a b-side

The other tracks on the EP range from the nostalgic-sounding 'Bir Hakeim' and 'Stickm,' which showcase Matt Myer on (mostly muted) horn, to the at-times frenzied Klezmer-influenced piece 'Corentin Cariou' and the melancholy 'Oh my Oma,' featuring Gina Burgess' plaintive violin.
