Introducing… Feldspar

Only a band like London-based quintet Feldspar can make a jealous and murderous crime of passion sound romantic. In fact, on much of their recently released EP, We’re Still Together (on Fierce Panda/Fandango), the subject matter revolves around bitterness and despair, with only the wistful hope of salvation. But oh, those harmonies! And those heavenly soaring melodies!

Their five lyrical songs of loss and lament, released through 2014 and 2015, have been gathered here together for your listening pleasure and mournful contemplation. For those in the UK, Feldspar will be performing at the Wickham Festival on August 6.

We’re not victims of circumstance, we’re just victims of missing our cue.”
– Beautiful People

“I went down to the city with its marketplaces, alleyways, its temples and its tower blocks. Where the buildings rise in stacks as if they’re trying to attract congratulations from a magpie god.”
– Hang Your Head

Whether it’s a failed relationship or a failed society, remorse and dismay have never been so elegant.

Boston Bands This Week (12/28/09)…

So I thought there might just be a handful of New Year’s Eve shows this week, but alas, there are tons of Boston-area bands playing. Trying to get this up and out, so my apologies if I miss stuff (and feel free to let me know if I do). We got everything from hardcore to synth pop to soul to a Bim Skala Bim NYE’s bash at the Middle East (sold out, but maybe there’ll be a ticket or two outside). Quirky folkies (and I just love quirky folkies) at PA’s Lounge. And a shockingly cool line up with The Boston Pops this year. Wow, Amanda Palmer?! Really?? Happy 2010, and more Boston bands in the new year.
