Band Of Horses - Acoustic At The Ryman review

Early 1970s country-rock flavour as Horses unplug
Formed in Seattle and now based in Charleston, South Carolina, indie-rockers Band Of Horses have forged a sound across four studio albums characterised by dense, driven electric guitars and haunting vocals.
April 2013 saw the band strip down for two nights at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, and the 10 songs from those performances collected here lay the band’s melodic heart bare. Rich vocal harmony arrangements give many of the songs an early 1970s country-rock flavour, and the warmth of feeling in the room is palpable.
