Band of Horses Release Is There A Ghost MP3

Dark and dry, just like every bit of of Band of Horses music we've heard in the past. That's a good thing. Somehow these guys cold compress their sound into a sweet package of BOH sonification everytime, I swear it's magic...

The new single sees the boys not missing a thing since the departure of Mat Brooke last year. They worked with Phil Elk who also helped out with 2006's Everything All The Time. Is There A Ghost is part their upcoming Cease To Begin album, due out on October 9th via Sub Pop Records.
