Lots of music this week but nothing that ya'll haven't heard before. I went and saw Andrew Bird perform live, that was pretty cool and I'm heading to go see Band of Horses this week. I've never seen them and honestly, I'm not familiar with their work. I have to cram their music by Wednesday. Where to start? ButterflyEffect, T-Dog, jonaswildman or anyone else... are you guys Band of Horses fans? What must I hear prior to seeing them live?

My favorite tune that Andrew played that night:

I'd say listen to Acoustic At The Ryman. Great recording and great songs.

Thanks veen, I'll check it out today. Show is tonight and I have some studying-up to do in order to refine my appreciation. Though, sometimes it's a lot of fun to go to a show with little to no history of their work. Cheers!

Band of horses Is cool. I've always been a fan of everything all the time. Their newest album is called mirage rock and it's all right. Nothing special in my opinion. Their song "detlef schrempf" is one of my faves. I enjoy their music but I saw them live and honestly I wasn't that into it. Their arrangement just doesn't lend itself to exciting live performances. maybe that was because I saw them at a festival, though. They do have a fat shredding blues guitarist/pianist that is hilarious(ly awesome).

They rocked last night! They have been touring to support their acoustic release that veen mentioned, "Live at the Ryman" and last night was one of their (if not the first) first electric shows in a while. You could tell that they were just releasing and the energy was amazing. I was blown away. Their chemistry was awesome and the music sounded fantastic, dense and powerful. Great vocals, awesome melodies etc. I had a blast! I'm a fan.

If you haven't checked it out already, Cease to Begin is a really great album.
