ACCORDION-POWERED ROMP ROCK
Featherburn plays accordion-powered romp-rock full of groove, grit and rhapsody. Dynamic, quirky and theatrical, the band weaves folk, punk, eastern European and rock styles into volcanic song forms with shouts of moxy, soaring vocals and stereophonic harmony. Its message is one of cosmic reverence and fun – a deep, playful wake-up call to marvel and wonder.
Danny Elfman, Tori Amos and Andy Kaufman walk into a bar. “I can’t believe you actually came,” says the bartender, “Meet Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, seems they’ve been waiting for you.” Colin Meloy comes out of the bathroom, sees the performers all taking off their coats and getting comfortable, calls the Decemberists over and chuckles as he shakes hands with the bartender who immediately brings everyone a Yuengling Lager and says, “I guess this round’s on me, folks. You win, Colin. I thought nobody reads Craigslist ads.”
