MICHAEL FEUERSTACK with Jenny Berkel at Wilser's Room (Fredericton) - Thu Apr 28 2016 at 8:00 pm
Show on Thu Apr 28, 2016 at 8:00 pm
On the one-year anniversary of the release of his landmark album, The Forgettable Truth, Michael Feuerstack will release a 5-song companion EP entitled Adult Lullabies. Mostly recorded in the same sessions as The Forgettable Truth by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in My Heart) at Montreal's Hotel 2 Tango, these songs feature the same core band of Pietro Amato, Peter Xirogiannis, and Mike Belyea.
The intimate opener 'Blue Light II', was written and recorded at home on a snow day last winter leading up to the album sessions, and features a gorgeous contribution by Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire) on vibraphone. Never intended for the album, the song ended up cuing the tone for this collection: pensive, mysterious, and a little melancholy. From there we move on to a looser, slightly more wry and raucous string of songs about confusion, love and compassion - heavy subjects touched with Feuerstack's poetry, humour and odd perspective.
