Feathe Interview on Lyrical Venus! 7/27

While students at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Alyssa Rieper, Johanne Swanson, and Adelyn Strei decided they wanted to join musical forces to start a band.  The result was Feathe (rhymes with “breathe”).  Featuring guitar, accordion and light rhythms layered with delicate harmonies, their mellow and sweet folk-pop would fit nicely in a playlist with the likes of Iron & Wine, Neko Case, The Starlings and The Decemberists.

This is the kind of music you can have as a soundtrack to so many things – an art day in your room, a sunny long-distance drive, tea with friends, to name a few.  No matter what, it’s going to bring a little smile to your face and to your heart.

Check out this video of Feathe performing their song Roses to see what I mean:

Their music may have that satisfying lo-fi feel to it, but the girls of Feathe are also pretty tech savvy.  They’ve been releasing their EPs on Bandcamp, a great site for musicians, and you can get the songs there for free! (or pay what you want, if you are inspired to support them financially!)  You can also find them on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Feathe is coming to Fairfield for a show at The Beauty Shop on July 31st with She Swings, She Sways and X-Ray Mary!

Join me Tuesday for the Lyrical Venus Radio Hour from 9-10am Central to get your weekly dose of music by female singer-songwriters!  KRUU-LP 100.1 FM here in town, kruufm.com online anywhere!  Feathe will be calling in at 9am.
