Last night I got to see Band of Horses here in Dallas.
If you are interested in their music, I would strongly suggest seeing their live show. Some bands arent captured well in the studio, and I would consider Band of Horses one of those groups. They are a strong live performer. Their latest record doesnt capture the sonic presence of the band or the quality of a few of the players. The rhythm section is particularly outstanding live, and Ben's voice is very good.
Go see 'em.
"Street" fingerstyle guitar player Tyler Ramsey is traveling with them, and is also opening up the show with a virtuoso set. If you like bluegrass rags from a little bit of a raw but nicely talented player, check out Tyler. I enjoyed his playing and his set immensely.
