The Growlers came through Phoenix, and I was able to interview Brooks Nielsen for Relix. It was real cool chattin with him, and the surfy guitar waves were groovy that night too. We sat in a small room backstage, on a small couch, with little picture frames on the wall, and talked about life.

Band Of Horses - Detlef Schrempf (Acoustic At The Ryman)

From Relix Magazine

[Band of Horses’] Ryan Monroe maintains fond memories of the experience, as he reflects, “We were getting a bear hug from the audience the entire set, so we felt the love and were surprisingly comfortable on stage. It reminded me of jamming at one of our grandparents’ houses. Maybe that’s why we brought out the old lamps and tables. Maybe we should have had an old man snoring in a tan corduroy recliner, watching a barely audible Braves game on an old TV with tin foil wrapped around bunny ears behind us the whole show.”
