yeehaw!  the wife and i just saw band of horses in manhattan last week.  they played two full shows, an acoustic show at 7pm and a two hour electric show at 10pm.  over the course of the night they played every song they'd ever recorded - 4 albums' worth.  fantastic night.  ben & company really put on a great live show.  love me some b.o.h.  !!  {#Cowboy}

I really liked that AB song when it came out. Last time I checked, you couldn't get it on iTunes. Do the songs really sound the same? I once saw AB perform arouned '83 while visiting my girlfriend at Carnegie-Mellon (great school in a really great city). His drummer, if I remember rightly, was Elvis Presley's drummer at one point. The guy had an adoring throng surrounding him at an intermission as he told stories about The King. Adrian was a bit more reclusive, but he was great on stage. Everyone went nuts when he performed "Big Electric Cat."
 
Let's hear it for some Belew on RP. (Yes yes I know how to upload songs- just want to plug the old raconteur.) His most recent tour is solid rock with the bro-sis combo rhythm section. Tony and Pat aren't bad, either

This was the song, heard right here on RP, that got me turned onto and tuned into these guys.  The lyrics are clipped and cryptic, but far from insipid, they are actually poignant and insightful.  I believe they refer to a classic seemingly inescapable angst-filled environment (teenage rebellion, rock and roll band lifestyle, jilted lover; could be any/ many of these) and a corresponding inability to rise above the dishonor and disgrace that is fully expected of them and, not merely co-incidentally, fulfilled.  Just like Factory from their newer release, the singer does a very good job of self-deprecation with wit and wordplay that invites, in me, far more sympathy than pity. A bit like reading dark and disturbingly realistic Russian literature ... I love it!

And desperate the calls came and ringing from those wanna wring your neck
Wring your neck"

I think this echo-chamber sound is becoming a genre in its own right.

I really like these guys. They've been on my radar for at least a couple of years - good to hear them here.

A good friend just introduced me to this band this month...and I'm so glad! I just uploaded a really sweet ballad "No One's Gonna Love You Like I Do" and I hope it makes it to the playlist!

the vocal echo is why it sounds like My Morning Jacket and the Shins. The similarities really end there, though. This album is really good. The newer one is great!

 

Liked the first one a lot. If this one is better, it'll have to go on the purchse list.
