Band of Horses
They may look like they could whittle a fishing rod from a log of birch but Band of Horses ain’t country bumpkins. They originally hail from Seattle and specialise in a kind of country rock’n’roll hybrid that The Tragically Hip, My Morning Jacket and Wilco regularly endear us with. BoH bring their own slightly trippy bombast to the equation, and their great new record Cease to Begin shows their formula is more skilfully refined than ever.
