Albums

Here Before [2011]

Released by Bar/None Records on April 12th, 2011

After a 19 year break, the Feelies are back with Here Before, an album of all new original material on Bar/None Records. The album touches on different styles from the Feelies' long history while adding new grooves and musical ideas to the mix. Electric and acoustic guitars melt together in archetypal Feelies fashion on songs like "Nobody Knows" and "Should Be Gone. " Elsewhere there are slabs of driving garage rock like "When You Know" and "Time Is Right" and the down-tempo "Bluer Skies," and harmonically rich "Later On."

Here Before was recorded at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ (home to indie kindred spirits Yo La Tengo) and was produced by Glenn and Bill. 

The album is available digitally as well as on CD and vinyl with a download card.

The Good Earth [1986]

The Good Earth was rereleased by Bar/None Records (US and Canada) 
and Domino Records (Rest of the World) on September 8th, 2009

The second recording came some six years later co-produced by Glenn Mercer and Bill Million together with REM's Peter Buck (a Feelies admirer since his days as a record store clerk). The Good Earth was an early release on Coyote Records, the label founded and run by Steve Fallon, also the original owner of famed Hoboken indie rock mecca, Maxwell's. This album introduced the lineup that continues to this day.

The rereleased album features deluxe packaging (CD and vinyl LP) with liner notes by Jim Sullivan. The album has been remastered by Andreas Meyer at Tangerine Mastering from the best available sources and it includes the original 10 tracks as well as 3 bonus tracks. As the band considers each album to be a discrete aesthetic artifact, the bonus material (including demos, b-sides, EP tracks and some new live recordings from the reunited group) are included on digital download cards.
The album is also available in mp3 at iTunes, AmazonMP3, Rhapsody etc.

Crazy Rhythms [1980]

Crazy Rhythms was rereleased by Bar/None Records (US and Canada) 
and Domino Records (Rest of the World) on September 8th, 2009

The reissue coincided with the Feelies’ performance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival where they performed the album in its entirety. The debut album is a masterwork of perfectly honed minimalist rock that leaps and darts into the corners of the listener's consciousness, a true sonic tour de force that Rolling Stone deemed one of the "100 Best Albums of the 1980s." Fans of the Velvet Underground, Wire and Brian Eno's early solo work will surely appreciate the "forces at work" (to quote a song title!) on this masterpiece.

The rereleased album features deluxe packaging (CD and vinyl LP) with liner notes by Jim DeRogatis. The album has been remastered by Andreas Meyer at Tangerine Mastering from the best available sources, and it includes the original 9 tracks (that is, without the cover of Paint it Black added on the A&M re-release) as well as 5 bonus tracks. As the band considers each album to be a discrete aesthetic artifact, the bonus material (including demos, b-sides, EP tracks and some new live recordings from the reunited group) are included on digital download cards. 
The album is also available in mp3 at iTunes, AmazonMP3, Rhapsody etc.
