I admit defeat.
No matter how much I follow indie music a few bands always manage to slip by me. Top sales charts are starting to roll in from stores all over the country and Band of Horses new record Everything All the Time is in just about all the top 25s. I don't have the record yet, I have heard a few songs but I haven't been inspired thus far to buy the record or even borrow it from a friend.
Be honest here:
A) How the hell did I miss this band's rise to fame and fortune?
B) Am I missing out on something really special? Don't just say yes, I want examples and reasons why.
