'The Funeral', the first UK single taken from 2006's highly rated Everything All The Time album, is one of the strongest, and most immediate, passages to Band Of Horses' ethereal, windswept world...
cannot wait to see them at atp...
although it's about a year and a half since I first heard it - new material soon surely?
Also, isn't the line "At every occasion I'll be ready for the funeral"?
I think I'd like this lot if I heard a bit more of them...
Only took one listen for it to steal my attention.
well spotted. im not going to edit it though. OH NO!!!!
What I don't get is why they've only just released this, I heard it way over a year ago. Why are they still releasing stuff from Everything All The Time?
this song is one of the best things I've heard in so, so long. a classic.
but not even a patch on the majestic "great salt lake". that song is nigh on perfect
Mat Brooke's new band, Grand Archives, now signed to Sub Pop. Fans of Carissa's Wierd will probably dig them more.
bizzarrely describes this as being a Snow Patrol rip-off on Channel 4 teletext and only gave it 5/10.
I used to take notice of his reviews intently but his increasing love of dross like The Feeling and continual putdowns of awesome stuff like this suggest he has lost the plot.
My favourite song of 2006. Lovely to own it on 7".
Also seeing them perform it live yesterday. WOW!
