ALBUM REVIEW: BAND OF HORSES – WHY ARE YOU OK

BOHbandpic

Background
Emerging in 2004, Band of Horses remain one of the shining lights of alternative rock today. The band maintains its solid reputation with its 5th studio album, co-produced by Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle.

Strengths
A dogged determination to channel the finest moments of rock ’n’ roll history ensures that Band of Horses leave no stone unturned in their efforts to deliver music that touches the heart and the soul.  The band achieves something that is unique – music that is at once earthy and ethereal – perhaps the closest approximation to what the late great Gram Parsons described as Cosmic American Music.

Highlights
Every single song is a winner. No exception.

Sounds Like
The Byrds, Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Dinosaur Jr, Grandaddy. 

Bottom Line
The years have brought maturity to Band of Horses – an ability to soar the bright skies whilst feet are firmly on the ground. Essential listening for the rock ’n’ roll faithful.
