Best Of ’10: Band Of Horses

Band Of Horses – Infinite Arms

I’m really not sure why there was disappointment from BoH fans when this album came out. It’s been one of my favorite and most listened to albums of the year, especially for cold weather and dreary days. Most songs are somber, echoy, and dreamlike, with a sprinkle of more energetic tunes like “Compliments”, “Laredo”, “Dilly”, and “NW Apt”. Infinite Arms has been on repeat in my car for the last few months – the perfect soundtrack to my short little drives around the island… and it’s even better when listened to from start to finish.

Favorite tracks: “Factory”, “Blue Beard”, “Infinite Arms”

Band Of Horses – “Dilly”

Soon I’ll write a lot more about the latest Band Of Horses album, Infinite Arms. It’ll definitely be high on my list for the year. Meanwhile, here’s the odd and violent new video for the song “Dilly”, which is definitely one of the more upbeat tracks on the record.

Lyric Of The Week

Band Of Horses – “Factory”

I’ve talked about the lyrics to this song before…this first line seems like such a perfect way to start an album: “The elevator in the hotel lobby has a lazy door… the man inside it is going to a hotel room”. I’ve been listening to the newest BoH album a lot lately, and this track’s lyrics in particular are just so mysterious and sad, really setting a mood.

I love this line in particular:

“Now and later I was thinking it over by the snack machine
I thought about you and a candy bar.”

Cee Lo Green – “No One’s Gonna Love You” (Band Of Horses cover)

I’ve always loved this tune from Band Of Horses and I think this remix/cover is very well done. What’s even more well done is this video! Less than 4 minutes long and I was so pulled into the story! It’s beautifully shot and edited. Check it out:

NEW Music: Band Of Horses

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”.
