Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the New York-based Alt-Rock band made up of two brothers and three longtime friends. Celebration, Florida is an exhilarating amalgamation of frightening horn sections, unexpected 808s, ambient synth lines, schoolyard taunts, booming, primitive drum beats, heavy bass lines, piano, violin, accordion, ringing guitars, rave beats, and sinister acid jazz that captivates and mystifies. Recorded in the library and theater of Beacon, NYs old high school, the band explores a multitude of sounds and instrumentation throughout the expansive album. Its inspired, imaginative, heady, menacing, passionate, and rollicking. Most importantly, it's as steadfastly authentic as ever, expanding upon the dark, woozy undercurrent of ramshackle barroom blues, vaudevillian atmospherics, and surreal storytelling of their previous albums.

Customer Reviews

Unique, engaging and emotional.
Kathy
The Felice Brothers, relentlessly and unfairly compared to "The Band," yet again distinguish themselves with a CD that is brave and brilliant.
Susan Fair
This is a REALLY, painfully good album.

This group just keeps getting better. One of my favorite current bands have done it again with this great album of songs. Fire at the Pageant sets the tone and it's a unique journey through Celebration, Florida. I really like the attempts at different sounds the band has used, employing more production work but not so much that it takes away from the songs. They still have that amazing storytelling quality to them and the songs from the album that I've heard live are just epic. Do yourself a favor and buy this album.....if only to listen to River Jordan again and again and again.

With songs ranging from merrily creepy (Fire at the Pageant) to heartbreakingly anguished (River Jordan) The Felice Brothers new release Celebration, Florida magically manages to maintain the bands' signature sound while being totally unexpected at the same time. The Felice Brothers, relentlessly and unfairly compared to "The Band," yet again distinguish themselves with a CD that is brave and brilliant. Their sound is their own, and never more so than on Celebration, Florida.
The album was produced by Jeremy Backofen, whose consistent and valuable presence as producer on the Brothers' previous CDS have made him a 6th Felice Brother of sorts.
The Felice's deservedly have a very dedicated fan base and those fans will be delighted with Celebration. But Celebration Florida is also for the new listener. Be forewarned: On Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers will entertain you with stories that will remind you the ones you used to cajole your favorite drunken uncle into telling when you were a kid, make you want to dance, make you laugh and break your heart - sometimes simultaneously. And Ian Felice and Christmas are two of the best and most original writers (of anything) in America today. (As is James Felice, although unfortunately Celebration doesn't include a Jimmy song)
Do yourself a favor and listen to it several times. Celebration, Florida is a gift - a gift to music lovers, and a gift to those who appreciate artists who are willing to sacrifice the gratification of immediate financial returns for the creation of a piece of work that stands alone.

Keep listening, then see them live. Some new and sometimes haunting sound...beats, and as usual great stories. Everyone brings their talents equally to the table on this one.

With Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers expand their songwriting talents to a sonic soundscape that is eerie, compelling, and ultimately beautiful. While you won't find country-tinged, cacophonous hell-raisers like "Whiskey in my Whiskey" or "Love Me Tenderly," the band of brothers and close friends have developed a sound that is entirely unique, mature, and surreal - without abandoning their lyrical storytelling for which they've one over many fans. Celebration, Florida is easily the Brothers most complete, cohesive, and thematic album to date. I have a feeling that this will become a paramount and seminal collection of songs. I highly recommend this for fans of any music: the Felice Brothers have transcended the need for genre definitions with Celebration, Florida. This is for any lover of interesting and important music.

3.5 stars

Following three great albums of robust Americana which saw the Felice Brothers pick up the mantle of the Band and develop it in new directions it was imperative for the band to take a different fork in the road. Their last album "Yonder is the clock" was a mix of drama and high jinx's containing songs as varied as the barnstorming "Run chicken run" to the gentle sadness of "Boy from Lawrence County". It was a minor classic but it also marked a conclusion to the bands first phase of development and you sensed that more experimentation would follow. And here it is in spades in the form of their fourth album "Celebration Florida" a very dark and troubling album that by any standards does not "jump off the page" upon first listens. Indeed after repeated listens it turns out to be an album than is much easier to admire than love, scoring high on atmosphere but somewhat poorly on accessibility. One review has already described it as the band "weakest set of songs" but persist since there is more here than meets the eye.

It's not that the songs are weak it's just that on times they are just too cluttered and need to be reigned in. Opener "Fire at the pageant" starts with a tight stringed guitar sounding and a throaty vocal from Ian Felice who is joined by a gang of shouting children. Their role is to loudly advise on the chorus that "everybody calm down and please stop shouting' to accompaniment of loud bangs and industrial clattering in the background. It's all very clever but as a song how often will you return to it? Much better is the ghostly Tom Waits like "Container ship" which almost incorporates a hip hop beat and gently rolls out to a mix of haunting piano and synths.

While I love the rootsy American music these boys make in all their work, this one takes a sharp turn. Not as acoustic based than their previous stuff (which I love), I heard them live just before this came out, and loved the songs they did live. There is just something special about this album. I would bring this album up as a contender, if not a pick, in any discussion concerning a "deserted island" album. Haven't seen you since just previous to this release, and its about time for another excursion, boys.
