Also listening to Band of Horses' new disc.
Alot of feeling with little musicianship. Think Coldplay filtered through the Western NC Appalachians with a little Sunny Day Real Estate guitar styling in there while Ben channels Perry Farrell.
There are some good moments on the disc, and it makes for an atmospheric, regional type of listen. Which I dont think is necessarily a bad thing at all. Its kind of like driving though the Appalacians at night with a clear sky overhead and peace in your heart.
