Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Glyn Johns.
  • Recording information: Sunset Sound Studios, Hollywood, CA.
  • Photographer: Christopher Wilson .
  • After landing a Best Alternative Music Album Grammy nomination for 2010's dizzying Infinite Arms, Seattle, Washington-via-South Carolina-based indie Americana outfit Band of Horses felt the pressure to make their fourth studio outing something truly special. Preferring to take a more grounded approach this time around, the group tapped legendary producer Glyn Johns (the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Clash, Led Zeppelin, Traffic), who helped rein in some of the group's more experimental tendencies by insisting on a more intimate live approach. The resulting Mirage Rock, which was preceded by the single "Knock, Knock," arrived in September 2012.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.67) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Even when Band of Horses go for broke, the South Carolina-bred Bridwell exudes the laidback gravity of down-to-earth Southerner..."

Q (Magazine) (p.93) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real meat comes with some twirling harmony vocals and Bridwell's understanding of simple but effective melodies."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "MIRAGE RICK doesn't break with tradition, but finds the perfect balance of fragility and power..."

Paste (magazine) - "The effervescent vocal harmonies on acoustic ballad 'Slow Cruel Hands of Time' recall the blue-sky '70s-rock masters like America and Crosby, Stills & Nash..."
