Achieving musical transcendence is a tricky feat, almost
definitively. If it happens at all, it happens naturally — and
perhaps nobody knows that better than Seattle, Washington’s
Band of Horses. Guitarist/vocalist Ben Bridwell and bassist
Mat Brooke formed Band of Horses in 2004, after the
dissolution of their nearly ten-year run in northwest
melancholic darlings Carissa’s Wierd. Carissa’s Wierd
trafficked in sadly beautiful orchestral pop, whose songs
told unflinching stories of heartbreak and loss, leavened
with defeatist humor. And, Band of Horses rises from the
ashes of that well-loved band. After playing music with each
other for over a decade, Bridwell and Brooke picked up
together again when Bridwell began fleshing out his
compositions post-Carissa’s. 'It was really just a natural
thing we started doing,' explains Bridwell. Buoyed by
Bridwell’s warm, reverb-heavy vocals (which channel a strange
brew of Wayne Coyne, Neil Young and Doug Martsch,) Band
of Horses’ woodsy, dreamy songs ooze with amorphous
tension, longing and hope. At times raggedly epic ('The
Great Salt Lake') and delicately pensive ('St. Augustine,'
'Monsters'), Everything All the Time is an album painted
gorgeously in fragile highs and lows.
