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.  Rhapsody.com 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.
