We have posted about Blessed Feathers many times on MM, and they featured in our round up of our favourite albums of 2011. Last year they released a very fine five track EP Peaceful Beasts In An Ocean Of Weeds to much critical acclaim.
They just announced a winter tour in support of the EP, which includes dates with Mount Moriah, Young Buffalo and a stop at this year’s SXSW Music Festival (a show we will definitely be catching). In anticipation of the upcoming tour the band has a released an new track from the EP, Winter Sister and also posted a video for a brand new track Salvation Army which was recorded live at Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom.
Listen and watch both here.
