"Wisconsin Band to Watch in 2017" - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"In Sarah Vos they have a compelling vocalist, similar to a combination of Norah Jones and Eilen Jewell, who carries every tune with her husky, deeply emotional tone that feels lived in and real." -American Songwriter "Cartoon Moon" 4 out of 5 album review on September 30, 2016
"Milwaukee's Dead Horses bring out the best in songwriting and folk music." -Elmore Magazine "Cartoon Moon" 93 out of 100 album review on September 30, 2016
"In an age of stark division during yet another hyper-polarized election cycle, in a time when even playing the National Anthem sends the Internet into apoplectic shock, when the threat of random violence leads to a level of heightened awareness which verges on paranoia, Dead Horses’ universal idea that we are bound by a common need to share our love and to hope for better times seems not only fitting, it’s actually much needed." -National Road Magazine "Cartoon Moon" album review on September 21, 2016
"All I know is that I can’t stop listening to this album. But don’t take my word for it. Take a listen for yourself." -Huffington Post "Cartoon Moon" album review on September 7, 2016
"Beautiful and fresh, Vos' exceptional songwriting becomes music magic." -No Depression "Cartoon Moon" album review on August 10, 2016
"...captures the folk sounds of the late ‘60s. Its disenchanted folk mines a fertile ground that’s bloomed for the past 50 years, and its slow crescendo works as well now as slow, sad crescendoes did for Bob Dylan and Joan Baez in days of yore." -PopMatters "Cartoon Moon" track premiere on August 11, 2016
"...as infectious as it is moving, bringing to mind the folkier material of groups like the Dixie Chicks at their most sensitive and poignant." -Glide Magazine track premiere on August 3, 2016
"Dead Horses has a sound equally beautiful and effortless." -Stephanie Elkins, Wisconsin Public Radio "Simply Folk"
"Cartoon Moon is not just a good album, it's a great album, and people need to hear it." -Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo
"It's not out of line to suggest that Dead Horses are among the most popular Wisconsin-bred bands right now. Between the trio's timeless and downright lovely sound, its perpetually rigorous show and festival itinerary, and the fact that both the Milwaukee and Fox Cities music communities are eager to claim them as their own, Dead Horses have been winning fans in all corners of Wisconsin since the release of 2014's Space and Time." -Milwaukee Record preview on April 18, 2016
"Dead Horses has become a prominent fixture in Wisconsin’s blossoming music scene. An American folk aesthetic enhanced by a youthful twist, not unlike the early work of fellow midwesterner Sufjan Stevens." -The Badger Herald preview on February 26, 2015
"Best Folk Album of 2014" -Iowa Public Radio
"...the amazing old soul voice of Sarah Vos, evocative of First Aid Kit's Klara Soderberg. However, you also have the feeling that her lungs could burst open a la Susan Tedeschi or Melissa Etheridge and blow us all down." -91.7 WSUM FM review of Space and Time on November 24, 2014
