It’s cooling down again which means I can return to wallowing in my own self pity and listening to blissfully gloomy bedroom pop again. Combining the ambient etherealism of what sounds like other-worldly field recordings with the DIY production style of someone like Shlohmo, Feather Beds have created a sound that is eerily close to CFJ favorite ‘Oliver Wilde’s’ down-tempo brand of folky atmospherics. I love a bit of surrealist-gloom and i’m secretly hoping these guys and Oliver team up and create an unstoppable force of troubled-beauty that puts the whole country in a perpetual state of thoughtfulness – it’s worked on me.
