Song(s) of the Day # 942 Band of Horses

'Band of Horses remain a name of band that's achieved something down the years. This is from their latest album, just out this year, a nicely evocative track seemingly about watching time pass by. Neil Young and Crazy Horse as generally are the obvious reference point. They're a link to a time and place where it's forever 1973.

Also posted here a song that's probably thought to be their best. From ten years back. Pitchfork who like to make judgements on things like these, are pretty insistent that they're not as good as they used to be. I'm not sufficiently authoritative on the band to make a judgement on that but I'm grateful for these two moments at least.
