FEELS: Post Earth (Wichita) Review | Under the Radar - Music Magazine


Post Earth


Feb 07, 2019 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

FEELS, the buzzy L.A. psych-rockers who are amongst Ty Segall's favorite local bands-Segall is also a long time producer for the quartet-sound like they mixed the past 30 years of SoCal punk and Pacific Northwest indie rock with a dropper of liquid LSD in a liquor bottle and smashed it atop their heads. FEELS pull from incredibly specific influences-X, Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls-but on their sophomore album, Post Earth, they never sound like they're drowning in those influences; they sprint away from the aforementioned guitar-rock supremacies once they've collapsed into a groove, much like "W.F.L." and "Tollbooth." FEELS sound veritably inventive on songs such as "Deconstructed," a transient, call-and-response punk track that bounces, balanced by the heady vocal deliveries of Laena Geronimo and Shannon Lay.
