New Artist: Horse Feathers

As I was browsing music blogs recently, I came across a single by this new singer/songwriter calling himself Horse Feathers. "Curs In The Weeds," the lead single from the upcoming album House With No Home, is a startlingly beautiful and captivating folk song, bringing to mind Iron & Wine and Bon Iver. With haunting vocals and raw guitar and violin, the track has a quiet intensity that makes for quite a first impression.

Obscure Sound has a review of House With No Home (out on 9/9) on their website. It has three tracks from the new album available for streaming; I highly recommend checking it out.
