Our Music Year No. 108: Band of Horses, ‘Everything All the Time’

By
From page A5 | April 18, 2013 |

Artist: Band of Horses
Title: “Everything All the Time”
Year: 2006
Format: Digital (Spotify)
Grade: B+

My first exposure to Band of Horses was 2010’s “Infinite Arms,” a pleasant enough slice of indie folk, but not one that demanded repeat listenings.

That makes “Everything All the Time,” the band’s 2006 debut slab, a different beast. Where “Infinite” didn’t quite resonate, “Everything” does, coming straight out of the box with the not-so-mysteriously titled “The First Song,” a lilting rocker that sticks a melancholy sweetness.

There are moments when Band of Horses sounds like descendants of My Morning Jacket’s early records with less echo and reverb on the vocals. The bass lick in “Weed Party” brought to mind the guitar riff from MMJ’s “Aluminum Park,” while singer Ben Bridwell has moments when his voice echoes that of Jacket’s Jim James.

The Horses are distinct enough, however, to not sound like copycats. “Everything All the Time” stands on its own as a polished piece of indie folk rock.
