Band of Horses: They're Back


 

Following the 2010 release of Infinite Arms, the only Band of Horses release I was semi-disappointed with, I can safely say that the tides have turned back with their most recent material. After hearing the rock revivalist "Knock Knock" single over a month ago, my excitement was topped today upon hearing their latest "Slow Cruel Hands of Time" - a Neil Young-reminiscent country road anthem that picks away by the second with full-bodied folk harmonies and sliding George Harrison guitar solos.

This new album will be wonderful - I can just feel it. Band of Horses have been one of the great loves of my life for over six years now, and to know they're bringing back their twangy Americana gift one tune at a time is just the perfect way to kick off a new season. And, just in time for a few autumn drives down the road; something I always look forward to when put with these kind of rustic, mellow soundtracks capable of warming up crisp October days. September 18th, and Mirage Rock, can't come soon enough.
