Band of Horses is going to a big number of music festivals across the country this year–not only are they playing SXSW in Texas, but also Coachella in Cali, and Bonnaroo in Tennessee. So basically, pick a festival and they’ll be there. Oh, and they’re also going out of the country for the Beatday Festival in Denmark, if you’re interested in leaving Recession-Central for a bit (although I’m sure Denmark has recession problems of it’s own. Whatever.)
This band alone is worth the effort to trek to a music festival. Their lyrics, soft, emotional and poetic, make for a great listen. And the music itself is like an IV slowly dripping rockabilly into your vein.
