Horse Feathers Concert
w/ Taylor Kingman & Barna Howard
November 2nd, 8pm, $15
Over twelve years and five albums, a passionate fan base has experienced HORSE FEATHERS as a precious commodity that they want to keep close to their hearts. One reason for this can be found in lead singer Justin Ringle’s distinctive voice, at once vulnerable and piercing, and in the quality of the music: gorgeous, lush string arrangements surrounding stark, visceral lyrics whose bite makes a piquant juxtaposition to the surrounding beauty. With their sixth full-length album, the signifiers of the band are there: Ringle’s warm tenor and lyrics that speak of work, love, and other struggles. But on this album less of the song dynamics are achieved with strings and more with an exciting new rhythm section steeped in Northern Soul.
