Free song from Chocolate Horse full of guitar, gauzy flute

We kind of love when a band described as a “side project” eclipses whatever it was a side project from. For example, the Chocolate Horse, a Cincinnati band formed in 2003 as “a modest side project” for singer Jason Snell. And what was his main gig? Who knows?

Frankly, it doesn’t matter. The Chocolate Horse sounds like a whole bunch of projects rolled into one on “Escape All Responsibility,” the free mp3 from the band’s forthcoming third album, “Beasts.” There’s flute, there’s guitar, a gently rolling drum tattoo and layers of swirling vocals.

“Beasts” is due Aug. 16 on the band’s own appropriately titled Stable Records.
