It’s a little scraggly and far less practiced and perfect. Mirage Rock strips away the pedals and computers of BoH’s recent work and replaces them with more crisp vocals and less experimental tangents. The album was recorded live and to tape, adding to the vintage quality of BoH’s music. It’s perfect in its imperfection.
Despite finding its biggest chart successes in Norway (of all places), Band of Horses originally hails from the same never-ceasing Seattle music scene that’s given the world bands like Nirvana, The Postal Service, The Fleet Foxes and even Jimi Hendrix. Completing the Country-tinged Rock vibe, the band eventually relocated from Washington to North Carolina. The members now (probably) enjoy being referred to as sexy mountain men instead of sexy hipsters.
