Seattle will always lay claim to Band of Horses — and it has every right to. Frontman Ben Bridwell formed the band here after the demise of his former, beloved local act, Carissa’s Wierd, and the group’s 2006 Sub Pop debut, “Everything All the Time,” is a mile marker of Northwest rock ’n’ roll.

From the anthemic howls of “Funeral” to the lushness of “I Go to the Barn Because I Like The,” it’s easily one of the best albums to come out of this city in the last 10 years.

No amount of relocation, lineup changes and unfortunate melodies can take that away from the band or the city. Which is fortunate, because there has been plenty of all of the above.
