I’ve always been a dedicated listener of Portland, OR’s Horse Feathers. So when they released their third album, Thistled Spring earlier this year, I instantly fell in love with the overwhelmingly lush instrumentation and sandy vocals that painted the record. Heading in a little more upbeat direction yet still capturing the feelings of struggle, Thistled Spring is probably Horse Feathers’ most balanced and best work yet.
I sat down with lead vocalist/guitarist Justin Ringle to talk about their new 7′ vinyl single, Thistled Spring, Bumbershoot, and his current state of mind.
Horse Feathers’ new 7′ vinyl single is due out Nov 2nd. on Kill Rock Stars Records. The A-side is Nirvana’s Drain You and the B-side is Bonnet of Briars.
New tour dates can be found here.
