I hope you did your listening homework this weekend. Friday afternoon I recommended checking out two new albums that came out in preparation for this week’s blog posts: “Let a Lover Drown You” by Penny and Sparrow and “Lonely is a Lifetime” by The Wild Feathers.
Today, we dig into The Wild Feathers’ release.
I share a lot of music on The Good Groupie, but if I had to make a list of my very favorite bands I’d fallen in love with since starting this site six years ago…The Wild Feathers would be in the top five. They write consistently GOOD songs any rock ‘n’ roll fan will love, and they are insanely good live.
Check them out as this week’s New Music Monday pick >>>
The Wild Feathers
For fans of:
Jamestown Revival, The Lone Bellow, Bob Schneider, southern rock
About the band:
Ricky, Taylor, Joel and Ben are the guys behind this killer rock ‘n’ roll band you’ve likely heard me talk about before. They are based out of Nashville, and they released their self-titled debut album in 2013 and toured relentlessly to support it. Their second album, “Lonely is a Lifetime”, was just released Friday…and it is more rock ‘n’ roll goodness with hints and flairs of country and twang. Read more about it.
Why I like them:
I am obsessed with The Wild Feathers’ sound. Their music makes me nostalgic for a piece of musical history I didn’t even live through. It’s the kind of music that keeps me company when I need something good to listen it. It’s the kind of music I can turn up loud and sing along to, and it’s a freakin’ blast to hear live. (Even if you get a $250+ parking ticket as a result of parking downtown for the show…)
Songs to check out:
“Don’t Ask Me to Change” and “Overnight”

BTW, these guys are back on tour this spring and you should absolutely grab yourself a ticket to a show if they’re coming to your city.
