Check Out Denton’s Newest Record Label’s First-Ever Release, The Sophomore Album By Experimental Electronic Trio Felt and Fur.
Welcome to Song of the Day, where we hip you to all the new local releases you should be caring about. By highlighting one new North Texas-sprung tune every week day, our hope is that you’ll find something new to love about the rich and abundant DFW music scene five days a week.
Felt and Fur — “Pulling a Thread.”
RIYL: Sounding like broken record.
What else you should know: Say you’re looking for an easy way to get red wine stains out of felt and fur, just follow these five simple steps:
• Blot up the excess stain.
• Mix dishwashing detergent in hot water and swish to make a great volume of suds.
• Dip a cloth in only the foam and apply.
• Rinse with a cloth dampened with clear water.
• Allow to air dry thoroughly.
If, say, you’re looking for a pop song to play at an upcoming funeral, that coincidentally enough, involves Felt and Fur as well.
Without blotting or rinsing anything, point your browser over to Felt and Fur’s Bandcamp page and stream the Denton dark wave trio’s sophomore LP, Held, which was released over the weekend.
Recorded by Britt Robisheaux at Cloudland Studios in Fort Worth, the experimental synth/synth/guitar outfit’s latest also represents the debut release for new Denton indie label Triptych Records. That’s also where you can mail order vinyl copies of the record.
Guess that also means we’ll have to update this list of the roughly 50 active record labels currently scattered around North Texas.
But enough about business, the reason you’re really here is to find out what we’re listening to today. That’d be this meandering doom disco single from the eclectic Denton electronic act. Don’t try to adjust your speakers, folks, that’s part of the aesthetic. It adds the conflict that all the ethereal female vocals help resolve.
