Album Review

The always haunting indie rock gone alt-country sounds of Band of Horses come under a microscope on the gentle ten-song collection Acoustic at the Ryman. Culled from entire sets recorded over a two-night stand at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium in the spring of 2013, the album boils down the performances into a compact presentation of their best moments. Glorious harmonies, acoustic piano, and twangy, woodsy guitars breathe new life into songs like "Older" and "No One's Gonna Love You." Though drummer Creighton Barrett is present for the dates, the drums are so understated (if played at all) that they fade into a far-off background, making more space for the lush tones of vocal and guitar interplay. With the same soft rock moods of America, the Eagles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, or American Beauty-era Grateful Dead, the decreased volume leaves the songs every bit as moody and ominous as their more electric studio versions, but far clearer. Even their relentlessly dark 2006 hit "The Funeral" takes on a particular gentleness and focus that was lost in the layers of reverb and tough rock dynamics of the original. [An LP version added a bonus track, "Weed Party."]

Customer Reviews

I was there, maaan!

We were there for second of two shows BoH played at the Ryman in 2013. Although, the lead had just about blown his voice on the first night, they still put on a great show. The first half of both nights featured the rare acoustic sets that were compiled for this album. Super excited to hear that it is being Mastered and released on iTunes.

Amazing

I feel like these guys deserve more hype to them. Aside from them being great live their music is just amazing, they are "classic american rock band" and glad to see that there still is a band out there that delivers great music.

No One’s Gonna Love You

Such a beautiful and haunting version of this song.

Biography

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...
