Band of Horses on KEXP

Well, my ears will have to be surgically removed from my computer headphones because there has been some great radio streaming in the Web this week, thanks to NPR, KCRW and KEXP. This little here performance by Band of Horses is no different.

For starters, I think The Great Salt Lake is rising in my favorites rankings, though it’s still just a tad behind The Funeral. Be sure to check out the slower version of Wicked Gil.

The group has made its way back home to play two shows in Seattle this weekend to celebrate the release of Everything All the Time, which has made the rounds on the blogs and should end up on several end-of-the-year top 10 lists, assuming it’s early-year release doesn’t affect peoples’ memories.

That said, I’m expecting the usual indie backlash in … 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 …

Band of Horses, Live on KEXP, 4/13/06:

1. The Great Salt Lake
2. Part One
3. Wicked Gil
(Which they dedicate to Mariners starter Gil Meche. I love baseball.)
4. The Funeral

  1. Thanks! I can’t wait to listen to this. It’s nice to have these tracks as well as the podcast with the interviews. You listen to the podcast, say, once, but it’s the tracks you come back to.

  2. No backlash here, From one Kev to another, you’ve been doing a great job with the radio show mp3’s thanks much!

  3. I hope they dont play Wicked Gil at this tempo when i see them live. Its nice and all but i luv the up-tempo studio version and i want to rock.

  4. is there any way/where i could download those Of Montreal files you just took down? i just assumed they’d be up longer so i only got a couple of the tracks.


  5. yeah, i just about almost like “great salt lake” as much as “funeral”. and i LOVE “funeral”…

    great post, thanks for making it!
