RIYL: Bob Dylan and The Band's "Basement Tapes", The Pogues
Label: Yep Roc
The story of The Felice Brothers begins in the New York City subway stations, where they’d busk until their throats were bruised. ¬†From the start, their¬†vagrant folk sound was compared to the Dylan-gone-electric era of the mid 60s and the rambling¬†post-Dylan¬†years of Levon Helm and The Band. ¬†Accordians, organs, fiddles and every other instrument you’d wander¬†across in the Catskills…you’ll find them in a Felice Brothers album. ¬†Ian Felice’s¬†whiskey-soaked vocals are the cherry on top for a sound both vintage in its inspirations and forward-thinking in its creative lyricism. ¬†“The piano has been drinking”, Tom Waits would say. ¬†Few musicians can pull off the drunken poet, but the brothers Felice make it an artform.
Yep Roc has some red vinyl for you after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†Check out the foot-stomping Aerosol Ball below, grab a cheap bottle of gin¬†and put a smile on your face. ¬†The Felice Brothers are back!
