5.0 out of 5 stars A New Find - The Seattle Sound, 31 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Infinite Arms (Audio CD)
I was introduced to the delights of Band of Horses by my Sister-in-Law, who seemed to think that my dressing in a Levi Denim shirt at the tender age of 52 made me some sort of Cowboy hippy, and therefore thought I would like the Band of Horses.
The Seattle area seems to have spawned a number of bands of the same sound including Fleet Foxes - and this is no suprise as the Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes shared the same producer - Phil Ek in the early days - although Band of Horses are a few years (and albums) ahead of Fleet Foxes.
It is early days yet - and I have listened a few times and find all the tracks pleasant and melodious. Folk rock is not really an apt name, they are more Indy West Coast and influences can be heard from the likes of the Byrds, Neil Young, Greatful Dead and the evergreen CSN&Y
If you like West Coast music and want to hear something modern, with excellent production and a clarity of sound that the likes of the late 60s west coast bands could only have dreamed of - then give this album a whirl.
