Cease To Begin by Band of Horses

Cease to Begin was the second album from gorgeously dreamy USA lot Band of Horses. Their debut Everything All the Time had been a runaway success and Cease to Begin continued to solidify their likeable sound with a blend of country rock, psychedelia led by the keening voice of Ben Bridwell. Listen if you like Fleet Foxes, Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips.

8/10 Jack 22nd May 2016

Fronted by the otherworldly voice of Ben Bridwell, Band Of Horses make dreamy folk music ala Fleet Foxes and My Morning Jacket. Alternating between cushiony pop, unabashed folk and guitar rock, Cease To Begin cuts a wide swath musically. Sometimes the jumps can be jarring, like when the bashing guitars of "Cigarettes Wedding Bands" slips into the country ballad "Window Blues," complete with a banjo. What ties this all together is Bridwell's voice and an uncanny sense of melody; even his brashest songs have underlying hooks.
