New Band of Horses.

New Band of Horses single is now released on their myspace, but I actually took the effort to tag it properly so you don't have to do it yourself.

Band of Horses - Is There a Ghost

Fucking wonderful. If this is the first track on the album, which i suspect it may very well be then the second song it leads into is sure to be wonderful. This has potential for album of the year.

Speaking of "Album of the Year", I think compilation of the year may go to this bad boy.
If possible I will try to get an mp3 of this up ASAP. But for now the Devendra Banhart's cover of Oasis's "Don't Look Back in Anger" on youtube will have to do.


If anything this release provides a healthy amount of irony with a satisfying aftertaste of pure unadulterated joy. Guilty pleasures indeed.

I am writing an entry to this blog in the comments section:

Well, well, well. The boys of Jimmy Eat World have done it again. This band has been a main stay in my top 5 since I first heard their Clarity album in grade 8. Then came Bleed American, then Futures. And now we have their newest album Chase the Light, which is due out October 16th, mark it on your calendars. This album is a real back to basics album, taking the Jimmy boys away from the pop rock ways of "The Middle". Check out the single "Big Casino" at jimmyeatworld.com.

Play it once, rub one out and then replay it.

Yeah Big Casino was painful to listen to.

But I do Love Clarity and Bleed America. Futures had a couple fantastic tracks despite being a relatively boring album.
