Don't confuse Portland's Horse Feathers with the local boys who back up Arthur Dodge. The crew from the Pacific Northwest plays a sparse and reflective brand of roots music that's more in line with Iron & Wine and Vetiver. Songwriter Justin Ringle assembled a touring lineup that includes violinist and sawist Nathan Crockett, cellist Catherine O'Dell, and banjo/mandolin specialist Sam Cooper. Recently signed to Kill Rock Stars records, the group also recorded a Daytrotter session that will woo you over with mellow awesomeness.
