Album Notes
THE DARK HORSE PROJECT was born of tumult, break up, and new beginnings. After nine years of active touring and recording with The Lovelies, singer/songstress Liv Mueller disbanded her former act and created The Dark Horse Project. As Julie Lawrence (On ) aptly noted, “[the track] "Haunted Face" is warm and sultry, with Mueller's dark vocals visiting dream imagery in a Mazzy Star meets the Velvet Underground kind of way. Rocker [track] "Dark Horse" adds more of a punch, yet feels just as naturally moody.”

After hearing early Dark Horse Project sounds recorded on a used 8-track cassette player, the production alliance of The Verdugo City Madmen (Grant Curry & Marc Hunter of The Pleasure Club) quickly summoned Liv to New Orleans to record The Dark Horse Project under the guidance of engineer Ethan Allen (Kristen Hersh (Throwing Muses); The Pixies). In late spring/early summer, Liv found herself in New Orleans in a cedar cabin/recording studio for nearly a month, writing, recording, and honing. The lush and often haunting Louisiana scenery proved an excellent source of inspiration for the record. With recording complete, Liv solidified the band’s lineup, teaming up with bassist Josh Rickun and drummer Dan Niedziejko. The trio articulates Liv’s newest material in a clean, haunting, and eloquent way.

Liv Mueller is a veteran of the music scene. Amongst her accomplishment, she lists two records that have charted on CMJ and has been showcased at major music festivals including SXSW and CMJ. Her work has also been featured on several network television programs.

Best of the YEAR!!
The best release of the year. Coming from the same reviewer that picked Feist the year before....prior to apple commercials and successes.


I love it! The songs are kick ass. I listen to it everyday on my way to work and on the treadmill.


Dig this album
I must first disclose that I am a huge fan of the Lovelies. The first time I heard Danger on the radio in MKE the song jumped out of the radio. Being completely out of the loop I didn't know that Liv started a new band. It's an edgy'er (if that's a word) and harder driving album than the super-poppy Lovelies. I dig the electronic dimension. If you like the Lovelies buy the album. If you like this album buy Lovelies White Leather to start. Then you can try to find Baby Justice and Hot One. See ya.

Great album.
Great album. Hard driving and thoughtful. Strong lyrics and melancholy overtones.
