Everything All the Time
Track data is currently not available.
Performer: Band of Horses
Distributor: Alternative Dis. Alliance
Notes: EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME is the debut release on Sub Pop from Seattle's Band of Horses. Matt Brooke and Ben Bridwell have abandoned the melancholic slow-core of their previous band Carissa's Weird for a brighter, more straightforward indie rock sound with obvious roots in Neil Young's ragged folk and progressive indie bands like Built to Spill. EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME benefits from strong songwriting, and the winding, yearning tenor of Bridwell, while the synthesis of introspective folky intimacy, immediately accessible melodies, and button-pushing rock elements is very appealing. Moreover, the album is beautifully produced, with layers of shimmering guitars and a warm, full backbeat, making for an impressive and highly promising first effort.
Uncut (p.107) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Band Of Horses specialise in melodic melancholy with a sheen of hope. Bridwell's plaintive voice lends the songs a shade of Neil Young."
South Carolina-via-Seattle indie-rock act Band of Horses emerged as one of the most talked-about groups in the genre during early 2000s. Their potent mix of Neil Young-style ragged guitar rock, slightly rootsy twang, and lush reverb-drenched production earned them immediate comparisons to fellow southerners My Morning Jacket; however, the band's second full-length, CEASE TO BEGIN, released on Sub Pop in 2007, proved Band of Horses to be distinct and talented tunesmiths in their own right.
