♣ Infinite Arms was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Alternative Album category and featured in several end of year "Best Albums of 2010" lists, including Q Magazine (#21), NPR Listeners (#15), Filter Magazine (#10) and Paste Magazine (#14). The song "Laredo" was placed at number 28 in Rolling Stone Magazine's top 50 songs of 2010.
♣ Acoustic at the Ryman, a 10-song virtual greatest hits set of acoustic renditions of songs from across the BOH catalog, recorded at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium over two magical nights in April 2013.
♣ Having captured this two-night stand's worth of singular performances that the NASHVILLE SCENE said "brought to mind the best efforts of Eagles and Crosby, Stills and Nash," Band of Horses set about translating the energy and electricity of the Ryman document into the closest possible experience to having been there. Band of Horses: Acoustic at the Ryman is one of a mere handful of non-Classical/Jazz albums mixed and mastered in the DSD format, capturing the ragged magic of an unforgettable performance in dangerously pristine quality.
♣ "The game plan was to keep it wild and expressive like the show while capturing it with highest resolution available," says the band's Bill Reynolds. "The electricity in the Ryman was off the charts. If that makes it to the listener, then we'll consider this a success."
♣ Band of Horses: Acoustic at the Ryman was mixed down to DSD through Mytek convertors and mastered from DSD to DSD by Bob Ludwig At Gateway using the Mytek 8Z192 ADDA. The recording was transferred from DSD to 180 Gram Vinyl by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab.
