The supergroup consisting of Anais Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson, and Josh Kaufman are just consistently releasing some of the best folk rock out there today. Bonny Light Horseman's latest single, "Sweetbread," is simply a perfect song. It's mainstream modern folk rock that just has that completely unique flair to it that helps set it apart from most of the other artists we cover here. Despite being purely a modern take on the traditional folk song, "Sweetbread" does have an indie rock vibe to it. It almost sounds as if Built to Spill decided to make a folk song. If you weren't excited for the upcoming album already, this is going to solidify it for you.
Josh Kaufman says of the new song:
You can listen to "Sweetbread" below. Rolling Golden Holy is due out October 7 on 37d03d Records. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on Bonny Light Horseman, check out their website. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
