Music News - Band of Horses

I have to say - the 2006 album that I still listen to with the most regularity is the debut from Band of Horses, Everything All The Time. Having just seen them play a free show at McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn last weekend I can safely say the new material is strong, as they shared about 4 or 5 new songs during their 1 hour set.

Sub Pop will release the follow up album on October 9. Cease To Begin will feature 10 songs, and lead singer/songwriter Ben Bridwell had this to say about the new songs in a recent interview over at Pitchfork: "I guess the first record had some kind of country-ish leanings and things [but] I think there’s maybe a little bit more of [that] feeling on it, a little more down-home, I guess, and not so much indie rock".

The track list is as follows:

1 Is There A Ghost
2 Ode to LRC
3 No One's Gonna Love You
4 Detlef Schrempf
5 The General Specific
6 Lamb On The Lam (In The City)
7 Islands On The Coast
8 Marry Song
9 Cigarettes, Wedding Bands
10 Window Blues
