Band of Horses – “Slow Cruel Hands of Time”

Ben Bridwell’s nostalgic storytelling is set against frail, jangling chords on the latest track from Band of Horses’ upcoming Mirage Rock (out September 18th via Columbia). Visiting his childhood neighborhood and hometown, Bridwell retraces the landmarks of his past, noting the abandoned buildings, the mountain roads, the people he scuffled with in high school. All of that has melted into memories over time, dripping into a fleeting nostalgia. Everything about this song (the subtle twang, the harmonized vocals) yearns for those bygone years. –Jon Hadusek
