Calexico – “Falling From The Sky” (Feat. Ben Bridwell) (Stereogum Premiere)

Last month, Calexico treated us to "Cumbia de Donde", a tasty electro-mariachi hybrid from their forthcoming Edge of the Sun LP. Now they’ve followed up with the soaring, desert highway soundtrack, "Falling From The Sky", which features Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell on backing vocals. It’s more of a straight-ahead rock song, but with… More »

Band Of Horses & Grandaddy – “Hang An Ornament”

Here's some news that will have '00s indie-heads all atwitter: Grandaddy's Jason Lytle is producing the next Band Of Horses album. It makes a lot of sense, as both acts originated from the Pacific Northwest and put their own expansive modern spin on indie and folk-rock sounds. Band Of Horses announced the news on SoundCloud,… More »

Musicians Pay Tribute To Elliott Smith, Who Died 10 Years Ago Today

There are lots of words to toss around when Elliott Smith comes up -- brilliant, troubled, influential, tragic, one-of-a-kind -- each of which fit the music as much as the man. But if pressed for a single descriptor, I'd choose fragile. More »

Band Of Horses Frontman Ben Bridwell Goes Solo As Birdsmell

Band Of Horses have been making soaring, country-inflected festival-rock for so long that it's almost shocking to hear frontman Ben Bridwell's high-lonesome twang in any other context. But Bridwell has a new low-key solo thing going on. Operating under the name Birdsmell, he's posted a few stripped-back acoustic songs on Soundcloud, and I have to… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Friday’s 5 Best Things

Peel back the surface and look past the picturesque valley backdrop. Forget about the gorgeous, sun-kissed young folk wearing next to nothing (or, on occasion, nothing). Go ahead and ignore the ridiculous hippie art splattering the landscape. Once you get past everything that suggests Coachella is a legit wonderful place, reality sets in. You're i… More »

Watch Band Of Horses On Conan

Band Of Horses aren't exactly the type of band to play different songs when they show up on different late-night TV shows, even ones within a week of each other. Last week, they were on Letterman, playing "Knock Knock," the pretty good first single from their new LP Mirage Rock. And last night,… More »

Watch Band Of Horses Live From Letterman Webcast

Today, Band Of Horses release their new album Mirage Rock, a satisfyingly fuzzy sunset-rock full-length that moves them back toward the road-trip dependability of their first two albums. And last night, the band taped a 45-minute Live On Letterman webcast. They opened with new single "Knock Knock" and banged out a bunch of… More »

Stream Band Of Horses Mirage Rock

We've already heard about 25 percent of Band Of Horses' new one, Mirage Rock -- the rocking "Knock Knock," the gentle "Slow Cruel Hands Of Time," a snippet of the gentle-then-rocking "Dumpster World" -- and now we can finally listen to the whole damn thing straight through. So far, I like it… More »

Band Of Horses – “Slow Cruel Hands Of Time”

The first single from Band Of Horses' forthcoming Mirage Rock, "Knock Knock," was a buoyant, zippy rocker -- so for the followup, they're going with the breaking ball: "Slow Cruel Hands Of Time" is BoH at their gentlest, warmest, and most delicate: all acoustic guitars, brushed drums, and multi-part harmonies. When I wrote u… More »

Band Of Horses – “Knock Knock” Video

Band Of Horses return next month with their new album Mirage Rock, and we've already heard first single "Knock Knock." That song's new video works as a parody of old-timey wildlife-adventure films, with a group of scientists tracking the band through the wilderness. That's a fun concept, and it also works as an excuse… More »

Band Of Horses – “Knock Knock”

Open-hearted road-trip-music all-stars Band Of Horses have just announced that they'll release album number four, entitled Mirage Rock, right around the time summer ends. And they've shared the album's opening track "Knock Knock," a fizzily chugging jam with some seriously great handclaps toward the end. This video accompaniment, directed by frequent collaborator Christopher Wilson, i… More »

Preview Band Of Horses’ “Dumpster World”

Slowly but surely, new music from Band Of Horses is emerging. The South Cackalacka-via-Seattle band premiered a new song, "Long Vows," at Lolla Brazil in April. And now the first studio material from their Glyn Johns-produced fourth LP has emerged. The minute-plus we get of "Dumpster World" suggests Ben Bridwell and Co. have bee… More »
