Seattle rockers Band of Horses are still trying to recapture the brass merry-go-round ring they managed to grab in 2010 with Infinite Arms, which remains their most BFD release as far as sales and popularity. Fifteen years into their career, however, an argument could be made that many of their best tracks both preceded and followed that Grammy-nominated benchmark. Founding singer-guitarist Ben Bridwell has long been backed by, and still tours with, that album’s keyboardist-guitarist Ryan Monroe and drummer Creighton Barrett. It’s been over two years since their last full-length, and just as long since they’ve played San Diego, but they’re reportedly working on new tracks that may well debut on the short spring tour that includes a March 6 date at Observatory North Park. Online videos from the last tour indicate you may also be treated to one or more of the offbeat covers heard on Bridwell’s collaborative covers album with Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam, Sing Into My Mouth, such as Ronnie Lane’s “Done This One Before,” and John Cale’s “You Know More Than I Know.”
