Next month, Band Of Horses will give us Why Are You OK, their new album of ringing, uplifting, country-fried indie rock. And last night, they were the musical guests on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where they played two songs from the new album. On the show proper, they did the revved-up first single “Casual Party.” And as an online bonus, they also cranked up “In A Drawer,” a song that, in its recorded version, features Dinosaur Jr. legend J Mascis. On both songs, they sounded heartfelt and expansive, and I’m looking forward to playing these new songs the next time I have to take a long drive. Watch both performances below.
Why Are You OK is out 6/10 on Interscope/American Recordings.
