My friends Mark, Rich, and Noah are in this band The Lovely Feathers. I always thought of them as my friends who had a band, but I’ve been listening to the CD “My Best Friend Daniel” and it’s really good. It’s catchy, funny, and I can listen to the thing the whole way through. I remember going to some of their shows and really enjoying it, and the album turned out well too.
Their site is www.thelovelyfeathers.com and it’s got MP3 downloads and stuff. I guess this is sort of an advertisement, but I like them. I like the guys, and the music, and I think they’re going somewhere.
This is a review from the Montreal Mirror:
If Lovely Feathers were a foetus, it wouldn’t even be born yet, but this local band has come a long way since its January conception. Before winning IROCmusic’s and le Swimming’s second annual Indie Rock Contest last week, they scored a Battle of the Bands gig at Café Campus on the strength of their very first show, and won. That initial victory encouraged some serious elbow grease on the part of singer-guitarists Mark Kupfert and Richard Yanofsky, bassist Noah Bernamoff, drummer Ted Suss and absentee keyboardist Daniel Suss, who’s wrapping up his studies in Singapore in time for a Pop Montreal gig.
For now, the “eccentric alt-pop” act is launching its debut album, a 13-step program of manic power pop, murky indie rock and graceful instrumentals called My Best Friend Daniel – the title is their way of saying they miss their piano-playing buddy.
