Horloquious Mortbecaux is a lo-fi home recording project from around Europe, which has been making original music for 4 years and 3 RPMs. Existing simultaneously as a band and a solo artist, Horloquious composes mainly in the folk/pop/rock/country genres, and lists their/his influences as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, José González, Sarah McLachlan, Johnny Cash, Laura Veirs, Damian Rice, Oasis and Maps among many others. Expect to hear layered acoustic guitars, tambourines, cellos, pianos, and synthesized drums & bass. The Low Road is the new album by Horloquious Mortbecaux for RPM 2010. We didn't manage to get a single live instrument (other than voice) on this album, so it's something of a departure from the usual style. Same genres, more professional (but less authentic) sound. However, without tempo issues to worry about, the songwriting emerged more consistent and the album follows its central character on a cohesive emotional journey from start to finish.
One Man Banned(2007)

The Low Road(2010)
Taking in the Antarctic plains, polar ice floes, small midwest towns, summer meadows and the seven seas, The Low Road is a traveller's journey from a state of frozen emotional numbness through hard times and out the other side into happiness and optimism. Employing pop, rock and folk-based musical stylings, we aimed to keep the songs as accessible and radio-friendly as possible while staying true to our artistic vision.
