iTunes Editors’ Notes

Dead Meadow’s fifth studio album was also their first recorded as a quartet — Cory Shane was added on second guitar in 2005 before the band reverted back to a trio in 2007. Feathers found the foursome exploring more sonic psychedelia that bordered on flirting with English-flavored shoegazing. “Get Up On Down” inadvertently recalls early-‘90s recordings by the Telescopes, with its swirling guitar effects, slowly driving rhythms, and tinges of late-‘60s inspired guitars. Jason Simon’s lazy reverb drenched vocals inflect in a high-nasal register, sounding almost identical to Telescopes singer Stephen Lawrie. And the hypnotic mantra of jangly guitar drones on “Heaven” is sure to conjure up some early Spacemen 3, should your iTunes Genius do some of the driving. The seven-minute mini-epic “Eyeless Gaze All Eye/Don’t Tell the Riverman” contains verses that echo vestiges of Dead Meadow’s riff rocking past, but the chorus smoothes it all out with melodic meandering and a solo that sounds like Simon fashioned a pair of wah-wah pedals into magic shoes before taking his guitar on a psychedelic stroll down Brown Acid Lane.

Customer Reviews

Enter the Meadow

If your looking float away on a magic cloud of noise, listen to this album. The vibrations of Feathers always move me in a special way. The bonus version of "Sleepy" is one of the best psychedelic instrumental jams of all time. If you like acid rock, you need this album and you need to see Dead Meadow live immediatly!

Good Sludgy Rock!

I saw these guys open for Wolfmother the other night, and they were awesome. They're def more of a live band, but the cd rocks. My fav song is the bonus track, which I remember them playing live. Really the reason why I bought this. The riff is gigantic. The albums full of great trippy heavy rock. Great for kickn back. See them live when they come to your town. The cd doesnt do them complete justice.

Awesome heavy psychedelia!!!

This album will stone you into oblivion just walking around the block. Fantastic heavy fuzz, w/ a few groovy lighter moments, Stacy's Song almost reminiscent of Reckoning era REM, with an otherworldly space bomb going off in it. I love this record.

Biography

Formed: 1998 in Washington, D.C.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Dead Meadow's unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitar-fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon have won over psychedelic pop/rock and stoner rock fans alike. Although the band's members met while attending all-ages shows in and around Washington, D.C.'s punk/indie scene, the trio draws more of its sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. The trio formed in the fall of 1998 out of the ashes of local indie rock bands the Impossible...
