Put This On Your iPod: Band of Horses’ Everything All the Time

[Sarabeth here, back with some more jams to add to your iTunes library! Every Wednesday, I’m bringing you music suggestions – could be something new, old, hugely popular or fairly unknown –  to awesome-ify your  collection.]

This, my friends, is my very last week of college classes. Ever. It’s all very surreal to me right now. It’s hard to imagine that after tomorrow, I may never step into a classroom again. With the reality of the real world heading at me like a freight train, I’m getting fairly nostalgic this week. To fit this mood, and for all of you other graduating seniors, I recommend Band of Horses’ first album, Everything All the Time.

About the Band:
Band of Horses is a rock band hailing from Seattle, WA, started by guitarist Ben Bridwell. Currently joining him are Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey, Bill Reynolds, Creighton Barrett. Interestingly enough, Ben was never really a musician, but hung out with a lot of bands; when he formed Band of Horses, he didn’t even know how to play guitar.

Top 3 Tracks:

The Funeral

Weed Party

I Go to The Barn Because I Like The…

Why You Should Listen To It:
For me, this album has come to define my college experience. My first college boyfriend introduced me to it freshman year, and it’s been playing in my car ever since. I have a lot of great memories to songs on this album, and hopefully now you can all go make memories to it as well. It’s chill, it’s emotional, it’s heartfelt; it’s pretty much everything anyone would  need to finish up their college career.
