Band of Horses

The band called “Band of Horses” was one of my favorite indie rock bands for the past year. I loved their song “The Funeral” (mp3 available for free by their label) and so many other listeners too, and recently the band won the most awards in an indie music awards Grammy-equivalent competition. More over, I even got angry at JBQ for not wanting us to go to the Slims club in San Francisco last Sunday to see them live.

Fast forward to yesterday. Now, their new single from their new album called “Is there a Ghost” is also released for free by their label. What a disappointment this single is. The same verse is going on and on forever, while the arrangement is nothing extraordinary either. Sure, it is a BETTER song than most crap out there in the chaotic Indie scene, but I don’t think that this is a song equivalent to the kind of press and label support the band is getting. I think the band can do better than this.

For an indie band, I like Deshead, especially this song.
