The First Song
The Great Salt Lake
I Go to the Barn Because I Like the
The opener on Band of Horses’ debut album could only be called “The First Song.” Its combination of Ben Bridwell’s lump-in-throat vocals and melancholic guitar elicits such an eye-welling response that you can forgive him for not thinking up a proper title. The group’s fearlessly dramatic strain of indie rock isn’t afraid to get heavy in both the musical and lyrical sense. Thanks to stirring standouts like “The Funeral” and “Monsters,” Everything All the Time never fails to provide emotional support for life’s most fragile moments.
