10 Songs, 36 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

Everyday I will be Ready

This is a great album. Each song is a beautiful as the next. If you get a chance check this out. If you are like me a could not wait to hear other songs other than "The Funeral" you may know more of this album than you think. A lot of the demos that made it they changed the names of the songs. But believe me you want this album. "The Funeral" is a superb song that is just flat out wonderful. I hate doing this, but if you like my morning jacket you will love this. Not that they sound the same or the music is the same because its not. It just kind of has that feel. Check this out if you know what is good for you. I hate pointing out indivdual songs except for the above ( i have listened to it over 30 times). Just buy the whole thing. Its well worth it.

Amazing

This is a great album. The voice, high and haunting, threatens to fly off to space in all its beauty. These songs are sad and epic, with the instruments always seeming to do exactly the right thing. Download The Funeral from Band of Horses' website and as I know you will love it, buy this album. I am very excited about this album and hope Band of Horses will keep up making amazing music.

Beautiful & Sad

I saw Band of Horses open up for Iron & Wine in Chicago in 2005. Though a bit rough sounding at the time, you just knew that there was somthing beautiful ready to emerge. I bought their tour ep which they were selling alongside the T-Shirt folks at the show, and loved the rough demo versions.

Their sound has a sense of humble and true emotion to it that you simply cannot find in today's world of assemly line mainstream music, and that of other indie bands that try to make you belive thier conviction.
