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 was released digitally as well
as on CD and vinyl with a download card.
