Blessed Feathers, “From the Mouths of the Middle Class”
New album from Wisconsin’s folk duo Blessed Feathers, out since last week on Cakes and Tapes (on cassette), Listening Party (vinyl) and selfreleased (CD-r). Stream it below and buy us a cassette if you like it.
“Like many of the best folk albums of the last decade, From the Mouths is an insular affair with a distinct sense of place. Berube and Beaupre self-recorded and self-produced it in their shared apartment over the course of the last winter, writing their songs separately then fleshing them out together with banjo, accordion, glockenspiel and flute and other instruments they had taught themselves to play.” - Express Milwaukee
“In short, it’s the kind of album that when put on you stop whatever you’re doing and reflect and prepare. It’s the perfect soundtrack for the transition from the excitement of summer to the somberness and beauty of fall. The sway created by the accordion and the tender hold of the gentle plunking banjo will take you on one of the more relaxing listening experiences of recent memory.” - Hot Lunch Collective
