Band of Horses "Compliments"

This is almost as exciting as the 75 degree weather in Upstate New York today!

Here's a link to a video for the new song, "Compliments," off Band of Horses upcoming release Infinite Arms, due out May 18.

It's tough to hear one song off an album and judge it out of context. I'm far from a hater, so I won't be the one saying "it sounds like Kings of Leon," because that's just ridiculous. Not to mention, most people think KoL have one album called "Sex On Fire." So I'm not going to over-analyze the song. "Compliments" definitely kicks ass and makes me want to hear more.

One thing I learned about Band of Horses with their last album Cease to Begin, is each song has a rare quality to it that makes it fun to listen to over and over. Hopefully Infinite Arms delivers in the same way. Compliments is a damn good start.

Here's the official track listing for Infinite Arms:

01 “Factory”
02 “Compliments”
03 “Laredo”
04 “Blue Beard”
05 “On My Way Back Home
06 “Infinite Arms”
07 “Dilly”
08 “Evening Kitchen”
09 “Older”
10 “For Annabelle”
11 “NW Apt.
12 “Neighbor”

Infinite Arms is out 5/18 via Brown Records/Fat Possum/Columbia.
