Dawes, ‘Stories Don’t End’ – Album Review

Dawes is one of those rare rock acts -- think Kings of Leon or Ray LaMontagne -- that glides effortlessly between popular music and a believably vintage-sounding aesthetic. Singer Taylor Goldsmith’s analog lead vocals may be unique for the ProTools-era listener, but his delivery is, unquestionably, a chip off of Jackson Browne’s old block. (Somewhat ironically, the band has backed Browne on tour). Which, in recent years, has left us scratching our heads. Does this band have an authenticity problem, or is this the sound of rock music’s Next Big Thing?

Band of Horses, ‘Mirage Rock’ – Album Review

It's funny how catchy tunes get called "infectious," same as diseases, with the most infectious becoming a part of us.

Way back in the mid-2000s, Band of Horses emerged as purveyors of such songs. Their ‘Infinite Arms’ (2010) album became a part of listeners lives, and 'Funeral,' from their 2006 debut, was a particularly sweet virus. On subsequent efforts, they rehashed those highs without reinventing their sound, giving in to an underwhelming fit of inertia that ‘Mirage Rock’ has thankfully shifted.

Band of Horses Post Behind-the-Scenes Video for New Album, ‘Mirage Rock’

BOH have documented, in part, their experience working with Johns -- who previously produced everybody from Bob Dylan to the Beatles -- with a behind-the-scenes video showing the making of 'Slow Cruel Hands of Time.'

Band of Horses, ‘Knock Knock’ – New Video

It may sound like the beginnings of a bad joke, but 'Knock Knock' is actually the title of the catchy first single off Band of Horses' forthcoming 'Mirage Rock' album (out Sept. 18). The official video just premiered this afternoon (Aug. 24) on NPR's First Listen (you can watch it above), and the clip's clever lo-fi send-up of vintage '70s nature films is quite amusing.
