BAND OF HORSES - Why Are You Ok LP
Let the record show that "The Funeral" off the Band of Horses debut is one of the great songs of the last decade. Now ten years later (and following plenty of music I didn't enjoy as much as that song or "Wicked Gill") they've made a very pleasant, sunny album that feels perfect for summertime cruising (and still makes Ben Bridwell sound like a hybrid of a couple different indie singers) . "Dull Times/The Moon" recaptures some of the magic of Everything All the Time, as does "Hag". It's just ridiculous how enjoyable "In a Drawer" is.
