Music: Band of Horses

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , , on October 25, 2007 by leftfieldlama

So I’m really caught up in Band of Horses.  I heard about them on NPR when they released their second CD, Cease to Begin. describes Cease as “…conjuring wistful melancholy and joyful catharsis, which is something few acts can equal…”  I don’t really know what that means, but they range from intellectual “Detlef Schrempf” (named for the former Seattle Sonics player, though as far as I can tell it has nothing to do with him), to the folky melodic “The General Specific,” and the repetitive yet contagious “Is There a Ghost?”.  And if you’ve never heard of BoH before, here’s their biggest release off their first Album, Everything All the Time.
