Spiral Stairs: The Real Feel
Buy! - (Matador)
The Seattle-based co-founder of legendary indie band Pavement (aka Scott Kannberg) follows up his latter-day Preston School of Industry albums with the first record under his own pseudonym, and it’s the best thing he’s done since his Pavement days. Mixed by the Posies’ Jon Auer and featuring contributions from Ian Moore, Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and the Australian band Gersey along with other members of the Posies and Preston School of Industry, The Real Feel combines expansive, psych-tinged indie-rock ranging from rollicking garage-rockers to pretty, country-tinged ballads with break-up lyrics ranging from bitter to resigned. 10/1/2009 - Don Yates
