Band of Horses just might be my favorite discovery of 2010. The Seattle band’s latest album, “Infinite Arms”, fuses Southern rock with sweeping orchestration and harmonies so tight they make the hair on my (not-exactly-infinite) arms stand up. I got the chance to catch them at an intimate record store performance two days before “Arms”, and I was blown away.
BoH and Cee-Lo have been doing the Mutual Admiration Society thing for a couple of months now. The former Gnarls Barkley frontman covered BoH’s “No One’s Gonna Love You” a couple months back and it “went viral”, as the kids like to say. Now, Band of Horses have turned the tables and covered “Georgia”, the B-side to ‘Lo’s smash hit “Fuck You”. For this cover, Band of Horses is joined by the UGA Redcoat Marching Band. I’m totally digging both versions of this song. Now, how about Cee-Lo and Band of Horses doing a record together?
