Band of Horses, like the Hold Steady, seem to release a new song online every few days. We’ve heard “Compliments” and “Laredo” so far, and “Factory” is a step up from both, though it would probably be too sleepy without the swells of strings driving the chorus. New favorite lines: “I was thinking it over by the snack machine / I thought about you, and a candy bar.” Not necessarily in that order. Ben goes on to describe a gob of candy stuck in his teeth.
Infinite Arms is out 5/18 via Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia.
