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”

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”.

Song Of The Day

Band Of Horses – “Compliments”

Big thanks to my friend R in California for posting this video today and bringing new Band Of Horses to my attention. I went through a big phase of listening to only this band, culminating with me weasling my way into their sold out show at The Paradise in Boston a few years ago. What an incredible live act they are! This song (and video) is sick, and I’m beyond psyched to hear more from their forthcoming album, Infinite Arms, which comes out in May. They come back to Boston on May 17th…and they’ve outgrown The Paradise…they’ll play at TD Banknorth.
