Blessed Feathers

Wisonsin duo Blessed Feathers released their debut EP last year and are gearing up to release their full-length debut this fall. The record, like the EP was produced by Kevin McMahon who has worked with Titus Andronicus, and Real Estate and features guest appearance from Sharon Van Etten's guitarist, Doug Keith. While they use banjos, violins and other acoustic instruments, to call them "folk" would be missing the point. Check the lovely, swooning "Ahbinreedis" from the new record which makes its debut in this post.

The band were last in NYC in the Spring and were also here during CMJ 2012 (including one of BV's day parties.) No word on tour dates yet, but that will likely change soon, as album details emerge. Until then, check out the new track below.

Well, they have their own unique sound, that's for sure. They don't sound like anybody else I have ever heard...

One of the best bands live. This song is very cool.

I've listened to this track 4 times so far-and though I especially like your more mellow style--this piece is definitely growing on me. I still haven't figured out all the lyrics yet, but those I have are really interesting and insightful. I'd love to hear a little more of Jackie's wonderful voice, of course, but--Donivan--you sound great! Where did you get that intriguing title, and what does it mean?

By the way, the picture (album cover?) is fantastic!

i read all these comments, and as a result paused a Carl Cox set. Thanks for posting all those congratulatory comments about your own band- losers.
