'Fantasy of the Lot by' The Lovely Feathers has already dropped in Canada, but will be available in the U.S. on August 18. I'm just giving it a first listen now, and I'm already really digging it. I was first introduced to TLF by a friend. 'Hind Hind Legs' is a solid first effort; it's sweet, bemusing indie pop/rock. TLF somewhat facetiously describe themselves as healing and easy listening on their Myspace. And it's true, their sound will make you feel oddly at ease. It's somehow both familiar and foreign at the same time. Parallels could be drawn between TLF and Sunset Rubdown - they're both emitting a creative, funky brand of indie that's simultaneously emotionally charged and playful (in a delightfully childish way).
