Feathers Absolute Noon

Tortoise fans should take note of this Miami-based group, which accurately captures the sound and pastoral vibes of the post-rock legends circa TNT. Perhaps having band member John McEntire involved in the project-he‘s credited for "Programming & Tone Shaping"-was a slight influence. It‘s not that Absolute Noon, the first in a series of three EPs, doesn‘t have tight, original arrangements or its share of pretty moments, it just doesn‘t add much new to the formula. Unless Feathers adds some new tricks to future EPs, this band isn‘t going to take flight.
