Why We're Excited: Tyler Ramsey has reached his widest audience during the years he spent as a guitarist and songwriter in Band of Horses, though he's also enjoyed a creatively fruitful solo career dating back to 2005. Sometimes, that solo work has sounded like the beardily searching, Fleet Foxes-style ballad "1000 Blackbirds," but on his new single "A Dream of Home," the singer and multi-instrumentalist finds a sweet spot that brings to mind the lush folk-rock rambles of Damien Jurado.
