Over the past few months, indie rockers Band of Horses have teased their new LP, Mirage Rock, by releasing a clip for the song “Dumpster World” and a strobing, woodsy stop-motion video for “Knock Knock.” Now you can hear the South Carolina band’s new album in full. Judging from our first listen, the record shows off Band of Horses’ more classic rock influences. Listen for the CSNY-like or maybe Band-like vocal harmonies on the acoustic songs “Slow Cruel Hands of Time” and “Everything’s Gonna Be Undone” and the Jagger moves (or at least Keith Richards’ honky-tonk swagger) on “Electric Music.” This all might have something to do with producer Glyn Johns, whose other credits include albums by Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. Judge for yourself by listening below.
Mirage Rock is out September 18 on Brown/Columbia.
