Album Review

The second album by Montreal's Lovely Feathers starts with a song called "Pope John Paul" that sounds rather like a modern-day twee pop take on those multi-part songs that Paul McCartney specialized in between Abbey Road and Band on the Run, where bits that sound like scraps of several different uncompleted songs are stitched together into one pop-tastic whole. It's almost certainly the only rock song to pay tribute to the passing of the 264th pope, or at least the only one to include a spirited chorus of "Pope John Paul, where you from?/Krakow, Poland! Krakow, Poland!" That lyrical quirkiness continues throughout Hind Hind Legs — most of "In the Valley" consists of lead singers Mark Kupfert and Richard Yanofsky yelping "Rome is in the valley!" repeatedly over a galloping new wave-disco beat — but to their credit, it never feels forced in the usual "look at us, we're so zany!" manner. Musically, things are pretty seriously amped up — it's not a coincidence that one of the album's best songs is called "Frantic" — but producer Jimmy Shaw (guitarist in Toronto dance-rockers Metric) and the band also display a remarkable sense of dynamic. Album highlight "Photocorners" makes excellent use of an old Balkan music trick, gradually speeding up the chorus into a frenetic explosion and then stopping on a dime to begin the slow build again. That sort of lyrical and musical cleverness can cause listener fatigue in some, but Hind Hind Legs is sure to appeal to those with a taste for smart-alecky surrealism and ingenious, over the top hooks.

Customer Reviews

simply amazing

I was lucky enough to find this album a few years ago at my university's radion station. It's been a few years since this album was released, so I decided to check up on their newest albums. When I clicked on this album, I saw to my surprise that no one has reviewed this album! So to clear up the obscurity and wash your doubts away, it's safe to say Hind Hind Legs is one of the few albums I've listened to that is solid all the way through. Every track is unique and rockin'. Anyone hankering for some lo fi new age rock is sure to be satiated with this album. It's dampened, longing mood is challenged by the tendency for quickened pace rock motifs which reminds me of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's earlier albums (namely Broom & Perishing (although not so much Perishing)). I've found myself over the years loathing any band that utilizes the typical rock band outfit, however, Lovely Feathers emphasizes inspiring vocals with energizing pop sensations. Grade A.

Why isn't this mainstream yet?

Wow! Why hasn't this band been mainstream already! Amazing!

Biography

The witty theatrical sound of the Lovely Feathers came together in 2004 with Richard Yanofsky (guitar/vocals), Mark Kupfert (guitars/vocals), Noah Bernamoff (bass), Dan Suss (keyboards), and Ted Suss (drums). The circumstances that led to the Lovely Feathers' formation only add to the Montreal group's unique indie rock display. Yanofsky was attending medical school when he decided he'd rather play rock music while the brothers Suss scoffed at one another's efforts; older brother Daniel studied philosophy...
