Feather Face: It Comes Electric EP release

Out of nowhere these guys came out with an album that is honestly undeniably one of the best albums of the year. Am I exaggerating?  NO! Feather Face is Steve Wells, Kenny Hopkins, Jake Harris and Travis Peck and together these guys from a storage room somewhere in Houston have recorded, produced and released an album that captures that sound that so many are looking to achieve. This is there second  EP but already has set the bar high for what we can expect from theses guys.

It Comes Electric strikingly begins with a soft build. Sneaky and winding right into a burst of chaos just enough to keep you on your toes.  By far though, the song that caught my attention the most was Youthful Offender.  A layering of keys a snarky guitar riff , vocals just a step below perfect giving it a rough edge taunting you to listen as they break into a spastic foot stomping hook. Its hard to just comment on a single song as I like everyone on this album but I will leave you with one more, Foxing. It is the kind of song you would listen to on those songs that are listened to on rainy Houston days as you know your plans to go to zoo or beach are ruined and you are stuck indoors. A bit Radiohead like but still stands on its own two feet delivering a uniqueness that Feather Face has seemed to instilled in this entire album. The only issue I had with this album is it was a bit choppy on the transitions. Some songs hit a bit harder than you expected as I went from one track to the next but well done.

These guys are scheduled to release the album this Saturday at Fitz. I for one am excited to see these guys for the first time. I hope their live performance can live up to the expectations their new album has left me with. Good job guys. I look forward to what you guys have to come.

Exclusive: Junip @ Fitz

So I got the chance to catch Junip Friday night. I’ve been listening to these guys for a bit now but their album does not do them justice, they are spectacular live. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I got there. I mean, album is very relaxing,  a very mellow listen and as most know those shows can honestly go either way. I was more than exciting to know that these guys are true performers. A xylophone solo?.. COME ON!! Thats bad ass. Needless to say if I these guys come back to town I will surely be there and for of those who were not there this time I seriously recommend you not miss it. Enjoy the video I caught of them this past Friday night.
