Busted: Band of Horses

I have a theory that every rock musician who came of age in the late-1990s and sports facial hair or a college degree is secretly 1.5 degrees away from and the latest group to prove me right is…Band of Horses. Our favorite snide hipster scribes over Pitchfork have just outted Band of Horses bassist Ben Bridwell as a former member of Donna the Buffalo, which is probably why everyone in the Relix office has been geeking over the new BOH’s album like it was lost tracks from the Billy Breathes sessions of something. Just wait until they figure out that Interpol’s Daniel Kessler named his dog Reba.
