Editorial Reviews

New Year's Eve always suggests a new beginning, and Cynic's New Year welcomes Horse Feathers' fans with the promise of something new. To be sure, old friends return. Wrapped around Justin Ringle's unique vocals are sparkling guitars, dancing fiddles, and smoky banjo woven through the foundation of the lower strings. But new elements are everywhere: horn, woodwind and brass appear and fade, and drums drive the beat in places, providing new texture and heft. The lyrics traverse familiar themes from natural disaster to the deeply personal, each through Justin Ringle's uniquely American linguistic lens. New vistas and new stories are explored with deep insight and fresh intimacy, always with an abiding respect and affection. The universe rises to threaten, inspire, and sometimes punish, but always to teach a valuable lesson. Souls, lost and found, embark on thoughtful emotional journeys. Cynic's New Year does not fail to deliver something beautiful and new. It navigates a thoughtful, thought-provoking expedition from the wide sky and rolling ocean to the most private corners of the human heart.

Format: MP3 Music
If you are into soft folk music played by gentle bearded men you will love any album by Horse Feathers, who have shown great consistency with their latest album Cynic's New Year. This will get you in a relaxed mood when the rustic atmosphere fills your room.

There haven't been any major stylistic change this time around, and the vintage violin still marks a very strong presence within the bands aesthetic.

If you like Iron and Wine, Blind Pilot, Bowerbirds, Sufjan Stevens you need to get this!

If you need just one song on Cynic's New Year to convince you of the beauty of the entire cd, let it be "Bird on a Leash". Justin consistently rolls out great folk music. I own everything Horse Feathers and so had pre-ordered this cd thru the website. And true to his word... Justin delivers. All my other cds by other artists will fall away on into the month of May.

Horse Feathers is an experience. Stunning, poetic lyrics. Exquisite and practiced musicianship. Add to that haunting and unique voices and you've just begun to describe this band. I highly recommend all of the albums (which I have) and make sure you catch their NPR Tiny Desk Concert on YouTube.

This was my first cd from Horse Feathers but I definitely was not disappointed. The variation of songs and instruments on this record is really a breath of fresh air from the "cookie cutter" style of whatever is popular these days.
