Pitchfork Festival preparations 1.

So I will be reviewing a few of the bands playing at Pitchfork

I'm gonna start with Band of Horses, whom I will have to leave my family reunion early to see.

Band of Horses is your basic straight forward indie rock band. You basic straight forward really good indie rock band. Whimsical reverbed vocals. They sound like your Built to Spill type, emotive and tight. The singer has a little of a warble that's pleasant. Interesting riffs that slowly build upon themselves. Songs like The Great Salt Lake and Our Swords demonstrate their uplifing nature. Very interested in seeing how this group translates live... With festivals of smaller bands it's allways a question of can they hold their own in front of 15000 people?
