NYPL Blog Post - I Love Rock & Roll Part 3: Band of Horses

Hey all, Part 3 of a series titled I Love Rock & Roll is up now over on NYPL's Blogs.  It is a look at Band of Horses for those uninitiated.

 I love it when the day job and the hobbies combine, after having lunch with a fellow coworker and realizing that she was doing an I Love Reading group of blog posts over on NYPL I decided to finally get together this idea I have had simmering for a while and contribute to the site.  

I hate it when friends or just random people mention there are no good rock and roll bands these days.  I am not talking hipster style "this band is so cool no one knows them with their synth's and quaffed hair", I am talking gut check, straight ahead rock and roll.  These bands I showcase on NYPL blogs will not surprise any readers of this site, but I just wanted to reach a wider audience with some great acts that are worthy of attention, so give them a click and voice your opinion.

This week is another RtBE favorite, Band of Horses with their angel like vocals and soothing tunes.  They bowled us over the first time we ever caught them live at Jazzfest and we have been fans ever since.  Their new album is hopefully out this year, and if their last few live shows were any indication it could be a bit noisy which is all this band lacks.  Here are a few songs from the fellas to hold you over...

"The Funeral" This is the first national appearance I talked about in the blog post:

"Compliments" Live on The Late Late Show with the bands current line up.

 Their Awesome live cover of "Am I A Good Man" by Them Two, grab this if you don't have it.
