Band of Horses

Band of Horses formed in 2004 after the breakup of frontman Ben Bridwell’s previous band Carissa’s Wierd [sic]. The band released their first LP, Everything All the Time, in 2006 and quickly followed it with Cease to Begin in 2007. They are still active to this day, though Bridwell remains the only constant and the band has experienced numerous lineup changes.

The band’s 2011 LP Infinite Arms was nominated for a Grammy. It was the first not on their original label, Sub Pop. Since then, Band of Horses has continued to grow in notoriety with additional major-label releases and worldwide tours.

A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums Of 2006

On June 6, 2006, FensePost went live. Since its inception, I’ve written more than 1,000 album reviews and countless features, track reviews, live reviews, and video reviews. My collection has grown exponentially. I have a room in my house devoted entirely to records. CDs go in the living room and I’m out of shelving space. To say FensePost has become a big part of my life would be an understatement. It’s as much a second job as it is a hobby.
