We had a stable of fine players with us this afternoon, the Seattle outfit Band Of Horses stopped by to share a preview of what’s to come later tonight when they open up for My Morning Jacket in a sold-out XRT 4D concert. The always amiable Frank E. Lee and the group have become quite familiar with each other as this was the second time the group visited XRT’s studios.

Playing a couple tracks from of their new album, Mirage Rock, Band of Horses takes their exemplary harmonies in “How To Live” and complement them with unique folk melodies that shapes their sound.

While the band is originally based out of Seattle, lead singer Ben Bridwell explained “Seattle is full of artists with inspiring sounds, but we moved back to South Carolina because it is mostly full of Jimmy Buffet cover bands.”

The band worked with legendary producer Glyn Johns on the album, who has worked with the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, The Who, and The Rolling Stones among other rock legends. The group described Johns as a “no nonsense guy who really helped us focus on our work and tighten up our sound.”
