Delicious is a 5 song honky-tonk get down about hanging out on porches, thinking about ladies, and rambling down lonely roads... Think The Ladybirds and Adventure on a road trip to Graceland.
This album will be FREE for the first week at Bandcamp.com, followed by an In-store at Ear X-tacy on March 5th.

This is bad news to Ear X-tacy and Louisville Is For Lovers, both of whom use Thinkindie as their Digital Distributer. It's bad news for you to, as Thinkindie is the largest digital distributer of indie bands, and indie stores in the US. Sites like Bandcamp.com can pick up some slack, though Thinkindie offered free downloads, promotional downloads, rare exclusives, and price setting by the client.
This weekend is your last chance to pick up downloads of all Louisville Is For Lovers valentine's day comps (almost fitting that Valentine's day will be the last day to pick up these albums), as well as FREE albums, EP's, as well as Ear X-tacy only releases and compilations.

If your liking Louisville pop acoustic style, and we know you do, stop by and grab a coffee.. just don't ask for tea, they get grouchy about that.
It's the first time out for Natalie and Ben since the new album, The Fervor's ''Arise Great Warrior", hit the shelves, so you might get to hear some hot tracks from that too... it's a great album.. read our review here.

And although this has no Bearing on album i'm attempting to review (besides maybe the genius pianist and amazing guitarist), it did force me to go back and listen to some 60's/70's albums and was recalled to a time when music painted surreal voyages of magic realism, enigmatic characters, and strange love with ordinary lovers, (or ordinary love with strange lovers)..
Although The Fervor's Arise Great Warrior is a slight 7 songs, the near forty minutes sweeps through vast landscapes of crushing emotions that transforms ordinary peeps into formidable creatures, demons & warriors.
The first and title track sets the scene of how love can make anyone the bravest warrior, riding stoically into uncharted territory.. The second track, 'Lead Me', looks into the other side of this love, I.E. lying and side stepping as a way not to hurt someone whom inevitably will be . Both songs weaving in and out of majestic Guitar and Keyboard solos by Husband and wife Ben and Natalie Felker, leading one to wonder where the inspiration for these detailed ballads of love's ability to make one a raving lunatic come from.
'Crazy for The feeling' and 'Bent around a Dying Dream' are some of the album's strongest, tho all 7 tracks are terrific, carrying an anthem of hope and insanity (or that feeling of wanting to throw up when someone you love let's you know for the first time that they love you too), anyone who has ever been in a relationship can relate too.
The Album finishes with "Let's get Loaded", a sweeping epic that ties up the Album's stand out moments, building up into an emotional reprise from the previous track with a chilling declaration from Keyboardist/Singer Natalie Felker: "Synthetic feelings, you can't manufacture your own/Are you the reason i am all alone?"
But like all great albums, the end of the last song recomposes it's self, compelling a feeling of hope, reminding us that all great journeys for love are filled with monsters and insanity, but are worth it in the end, even if all we have to show for it are some faded bruises and a few displays of blind loyalty we didn't know were possible.
The Fervor's "Arise Great Warrior" will be out tomorrow, Feb.7th, and is a prime example of this city's musical talent and emotional sincerity. for more info visit karatebodyrecords.com

The first Krazy fest (1998) ended with an explosive lightning storm that halted a set by one of my favorite bands, Superchunk. The last Krazy Fest (2003) ended with an explosive set by Andrew WK, and a riot resulting with a clash with the cops at a motel on Market Street. (very fun strangely enough).
Krazy fest has always lived up to it's name, and always had a large array of indie bands.
this year though, seems like the line-up is heavy in the hard core bands; By The Grace of God, Against Me!, Anti-Flag, with a slight departure with Hot Water Music.
In the past Krazy Fest has added big name headliners at the last minute, so we'll see. but no matter the line up, Krazy Fest is always interesting, with the crowd and vendors being as interesting as the bands.
This Year Krazy Fest will be May 20-22 at Expo 5, with a 3 day pass for just $75, very worth it, if it's anything like the crazy Krazy Fests of the past.
