An Horse, ‘Walls’ (Mom + Pop)

An Horse singer Kate Cooper is a relentless whirlwind who doesn’t know when to stop – and that’s a good thing. On their second album, this Aussie duo’s buzzy guitar pop is more hyper and gripping than ever, as she breathlessly spews dramatic tales that have the immediacy of crazed Twitter posts. “My head is bleeding from banging it against this wall?/ What’s it all for?” Cooper sighs on the title track, then shouts, “Just please wake up!” at a hospitalized friend in “Brain on a Table.” She’s exhausting, but never dull.
