Stream the new Band of Horses album

About a week before its slated release, Band of Horses fans can stream BoH's highly anticipated new album Infinite Arms, in full, on the band's website.

The North/South Carolina-based rock band previously released singles off the album, including Compliments, Laredo, Factory and NW Apt.

As mentioned in a previous post, I am curious about the marketing strategy here. MGMT allowed a stream of their new album a month or more before its release, but they admitted that was because it was leaked. On the other hand, Dr. Dog's April release, Shame, Shame, was streaming on NPR a couple weeks before its release, but that seemed to be more to give the rather under-the-radar band some exposure.


While you're chewing it over, listen to Infinite Arms here.

Band of Horse's last album, Cease to Begin, with its simplicity and intimacy, hasn't been far from arms reach since I was introduced to it more than a year ago. So, I don't know about you, but my Wednesday just got a lot better.


  1. Open discussion on songs, the album as you listen?

    I'll start it out:
    Some really nice country-tinged acoustic work on here. Guitarist/vocalist Ben Bridwell and guitarist Mat Brooke really shine (For Anabelle is a great example).

  2. Like Cease to Begin, Infinite arms has a nice mix of highs and lows.

  3. Blue Beard if effing amazing.
