Brown Bear Endorses: Horse Feathers

Props to Whilden for forcing these guys on me over the past couple radio shows we've done. Horse Feathers specialize in being awesome. The songs come out like some sort of beautiful hybrid of William Fitzsimmons, Iron & Wine, and Ray LaMontagne. Sparse and deliberate guitar and banjo, hushed harmonies, and gorgeous strings, sometimes a well orchestrated swell of them, and sometimes just a single fiddle dancing and playing in the folk tradition. The new album, House With No Home, is great. Grab the lead track below.
