fiftymillimeter

saw them at the abbey in chicago a few nights ago and was floored. absolutely incredible show. this album is brilliant as well, bloody, whiskey soaked, haunting americana with incredible lyricism played with energy and a little insanity.

best band i ever saw in a church cellar.

wussypants

I saw the brothers in philly early october and it was the best show period. the floor was packed with young and old and they played a sweaty 2 hour set packed with energy. They have a timeless sound and use all the right instruments. buy this album and drink some whiskey and go see them play its the greatest show on earth yeeehaw!!!

amazing! even better live!

the unbearable digital ash

I saw this band last night with Conor Oberst nad they really were amazing they were all strung out on who knows what except the accordian player. The drummer looked like he was about to pass out when he stumbled to the front to sing a song... it was amazing and he sounded great! Whiskey in my Whiskey was the coolest song live they even brought out a washboard player! Anyway I obught the album there last night and it is really fantastic.

About The Felice Brothers

Hailing from the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, the Felice Brothers blend folk, Americana, and revivalist roots rock into a uniquely earthy sound. Brothers Ian, Simone, and James Felice grew up in the Hudson River Valley, several miles away from the musical hamlet of Woodstock. Such icons as Bob Dylan and the Band once found inspiration in the region, and the Felice youngsters were driven by a similar muse, gathering every Sunday afternoon for jam sessions and cookouts at their father's house. As their skills improved, the brothers opted to leave the Catskills and relocate to New York City.

With James playing accordion, Simone playing drums, Ian handling guitar/vocal duties, and a former dice-playing friend named Christmas Clapton on bass, the quartet held informal performances in subway stations while hawking its debut album, 2006's Through These Reigns and Gone. Recorded in a chicken coop by the bandmates themselves, the album was rough and imperfect, as was the follow-up effort, Tonight at the Arizona. Such a distinct, ramshackle sound found a quick audience, however, particularly after the band toured alongside Bright Eyes and participated in one of Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble performances in late 2007. The new year brought similar luck, as the Felice Brothers inked a deal with Team Love Records and released a self-titled LP in early 2008.

Several rounds of touring followed, including festival stops at Bonnaroo, All Points West, Mountain Jam, and the Newport Folk Festival (where an afternoon rainstorm cut power to the stage, resulting in an impromptu acoustic performance in the mud). The Felice Brothers then returned to the studio, emerging in 2009 with Yonder Is the Clock. More touring followed, including stints with Old Crow Medicine Show, Justin Townes Earle, and the Dave Matthews Band, culminating in the release of a new long-player, Celebration, Florida in 2011. Simone Felice subsequently dropped out of the group to pursue a solo career and work with his side project the Duke & the King, but in 2014 the new lineup of the Felice Brothers -- Ian on vocals and guitar; James on accordion, keyboards, and vocals; Greg Farley on fiddle and vocals; Josh Rawson on bass and vocals; and David Estabrook on drums -- released the album Favorite Waitress and set out on a major tour in support. For their next album, 2016's Life in the Dark, the group jumped labels, releasing the set through the roots-oriented indie Yep Roc Records. ~ Andrew Leahey
