Editors’ Notes

Band of Horses have come a long way since their humble mid-2000s beginnings. Now, on a major label, fleshed out into a firm five-piece, and opening for Pearl Jam, Band of Horses are being groomed for the musical stars for which they always had the potential. This isn’t to say that their third album, 2010’s Infinite Arms, is some kind of larger than life arena-rock release. All the beautiful atmospherics of their earlier work is still retained in the vocals of Ben Bridwell. There’s a country-rock undertow to some of the rhythms, but the sweet Americana harmonies of “Factory” are beyond any definite genre. “Compliments” follows with an extra-terrestrial keyboard that sways the band towards New Wave. The grinding guitars of “Laredo” and the angelic vocal ensembles of “Blue Beard” lead to that solitary spacewalk Bridwell pulls off so convincingly. The brisk pop of “Dilly” proves the band hardly loiters in the existential murk of their many sadcore compatriots, while “Evening Kitchen” harmonizes with the somber cadence that accompanies the closing of long summer nights.

Customer Reviews

Infinite Charms

This album is great. Lovely harmonies, chiming guitars and superb songs. Bought the two previous albums on the strength of Compliments and Factory alone.

I think this is more mellow than the previous albums and brings to mind Fleet Foxes, Flaming Lips, Beach Boys and Neil Young. A pretty, pretty, pretty good combination!

Best album of the year so far!

Buy it, its a grower!

I was a little bit despondent when I first bought it. I absolutely loved the last two albums. But like all music, I gave it a second listen, then a third etc etc

There are some great songs on here, nearly all of them. Great 3 part harmonies in lots of points, especially in "Older". Really suits the vibe of the album

Infinite Arms brought to you by a maturing 'Band of Horses', but this is not a bad thing in my mind!

Loves it!

Saw the band on Jools Holland and thought I'd get the album on that performance. I wasn't disappointed. Great album all the way through. One of those rare albums that you don't have to skip one single song. The tempo of the album is nice and mellow and is a perfect listen if you want to chill out. I just love the melodies, reminds me of The Eagles and The Beach Boys in places which can only be a good thing. Next stop for me is to check out their previous two releases!

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Emerging in 2004 with a blend of woodsy midtempo rock and reverb-laden vocals, Band of Horses gained an audience in their native Northwest before Everything All the Time made them indie rock darlings. Multi-instrumentalists Ben Bridwell and Mat Brooke founded the group after an eight-year run with Carissa's Wierd, and an early concert alongside future labelmates Iron & Wine caught the attention of Sub Pop Records. Sub Pop signed Band of Horses in 2005 and reissued their self-released EP later...
