New Band of Horses: "Is There a Ghost"

You know when a song does exactly what you’re expecting and is still totally satisfying? That’s Band of Horses’ “Is There a Ghost,” which offers no alarms and even less surprises. Wailing vocals? Uh-huh. Pounding electric guitars? Check. Inevitable climax? Yup. Good! More of this, dudes. Last time around these guys didn’t have much luck with the ballads, so hopefully sophomore album Cease to Begin is heavy on the rockers, paint-by-numbers or not.
