Puddlegum (Bloomington, IN):
“They’ll blow you away with the depths of their musings, then surprise you with tripped out vintage news reporter recordings, or a short speech advocating the need to end wars.
“Their self-titled debut album is available as a free download on Bandcamp. You’ll be thankful you downloaded it. In the recording you can hear the wooden floors as the earth shapes their sound. The post-production is minimal, with an occasional effect used on background vocals or sounds. The simplistic yet purposeful production compliments the songwriting really well.
“I see this band going far and making an impact in acoustic music in the next few years. Roll if you like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Horse Feathers, Rocky Votolato, and J. Tillman.”
Battlecry (Milwaukee, WI):
“Makes me want to light my desk on fire and go for a hike.”
Urban Agrarian (Madison, WI):
“Their banjo-plucking, textured vocals, and tambourine jamming tracks quickly escalated this band to on-repeat status in my iTunes library.”
Mad Mackerel (Charlbury, United Kingdom)
“…To succeed with an approach of this kind across a whole album, the songs have to be strong enough to stand up in their own right and, despite their young years, Blessed Feathers manage to pull it off with an understated confidence that thankfully marks them apart from the plethora of ‘folk songs in a cabin’ type crowds.
“In fact we would go as far as to say it is an outstandingly good album that grows in impact with each press of the repeat button.”
“Milwaukee’s Donivan Berube and Jacquelyn Beaupre’ have created delicate and earthy, desperate and rewarding folk songs using a banjo, accordion, and mandolin among other expected instruments. Donivan’s unforced baritone and Jacquelyn’s breathy soprano complement each other perfectly.”
