L.A. trio Ether Feather just announced their forthcoming full-length debut Their new album, Devil Shadowless Hand, is out September 6.
The Los Angeles trio’s sound is a weighty, swinging brand of desert rock-influenced heft informed by elements of No Wave, free jazz, and post-punk. It’s not jammy for jam’s sake, nor is it neo-jazzbo navel gazing—it’s crafty and astute, head-bobbing thud with a flair for tasteful melodic quirks.
“By the time I started writing the third Sand record, it became clear the music was shifting from the Mahavishnu-esque mid
70s-fusion to more part-oriented structures, and the songs seemed to want vocals,” drummer and vocalist Dylan Ryan explains.
