Band Of Horses – Infinite Arms
In stores today, this third album from Band Of Horses is just as compelling as the first two. I think the opening lines of track one are quite telling: “The elevator in the hotel lobby has a lazy door… the man inside is going to a hotel room.” This Seattle-based band has a way of creating vivid imagery by coupling the gorgeous harmonizing of simple phrases with their beautifully layered musical arrangements.
After falling in love with Everything All The Time (2006) and Cease To Begin (2007), I had no doubt that I would enjoy Infinite Arms. On first listen, my favorite tracks include “Factory”, “Blue Beard”, and “Dilly”.
