Editorial Reviews

Felice brother goes solo! A new group featuring simone felice of the felice brothers , who recently left his band of brothers to do his own thing. Debut album from stunning new group led by simone felice, who recently departed the felice brothers after originally forming them earlier in the decade. A couple of years older than his brothers, simone was always the leader of the band, although his brother ian wrote and sung more of the songs. An acclaimed poet and author, simone was the more experienced artist of the brothers and the most charismatic performer, and his contributions to the band's output - wonderful songs like 'the radio song' and 'don't wake the scarecrow' - were the sweetest and most poignant. Simone continues with that style of song on the duke & the king's debut album, which is already being hailed as a classic overseas. Less overtly rootsy than the felice brothers, the duke & the king's music is beautiful and big hearted, and should have broad and huge appeal. Comparisons have been made with late-period beatles, simon & garfunkel, neil young, crosby stills & nash, early james taylor and the like. Whilst it certainly should appeal to fans of the likes of fleet foxes, bon iver and iron & wine, there is no reason why it couldn't also have a much broader appeal.

This is the solo project (with a partner) by Simone Felice of the amazing and great Felice Brothers. I knew it would be wonderful, but I wasn't quite prepared for what it is. It's one of the most beautiful, gracious, gentle pieces of work any of us have heard in a long, long time. Simone sings like an angel and the music is sophisticated and gorgeous. Years from now, when we've had the treasures of much more Felice music, this will be the original touchstone for what Simone can do all on his own.

I was disappointed when I heard that Simone was no longer going to be part of the Felice Brothers, a band that I love, but after hearing this and Simone's solo album, "Live From a Lonely Place," I can't stop listening to them. Both Simone's work with his new group and his solo style are different from the work he did with his brothers. It is not rough or raucous, something that I find appealing in the stories that the Felice Brothers tell. Instead, Simone gently tells bleak stories, often with a deft touch of humor, and there is always an offer of hope. "One More American Song" tells a story that is so real, it will break your heart. This music is important and we are blessed to have Simone give it to us.

This album is really enjoyable and pleasant. This album includes songs from Simone Felice in a vein similar to what you heard from his Felice Brothers work. With this album we hear Simone's songwriting develop and improve from his previous work--which was already great. The band really complements each other. Most impressive with "Nothing Gold Can Stay" is that it actually sounds like an album, not a collection of unrelated songs. Each song on this album goes together well--seemingly a lost art nowadays.

I heard this during WFUVs album of the week when it first came out. I was so mesmerized I sat in my car outside my house until it was finished so I wouldn't miss one note. I bought it that night and haven't stopped playing it since. The songs are spare and lush at the same time and the loose "concept" idea works really well. If you don't buy this cd you will really regret it.

WHen I saw that this was a side project of Simone Felice of The Felice Brothers, I was unsure about trying it. I like The Felice Brothers, but their a;bums haven't exactly knocked me out. Pleasant, yes, but not great. Imagine my surprise when this album just blew my socks off! One of the best albums of 2009, it is an Americana masterpiece!
