Kill Rock Stars is one of numerous criminally underrated labels in the vast indie world. It’s home to Elliott Smith and Sleater-Kinney, among others, but I haven’t seen it talked about too much on the music sites I frequent; I’m using anecdotal evidence to make that judgment, I suppose. Horse Feathers, obviously on the Kill Rock Stars roster, initially started out with Justin Ringle and one Peter Broderick and if you check out the latest press photos, you can see Horse Feathers has grown in numbers. The lone single available from So It Is With Us, “Violently Wild,” is consistent with the album cover – natural, glowing, full of life… so full of life, that the face on the cover is vomiting life on to the cardboard. On a second look, the cover art is a bit odd with its juxtaposition of death and life – the pain that seems to go along with bringing life… Check out NPR’s premiere of “Violently Wild” below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
