FeathersIf All Here Now (NYX)
Before releasing anything, Austin femme quartet Feathers already stood on line internationally. Opening for heavyweights like Robyn and Washed Out, and tapped for a spot at the UK's All Tomorrow's Parties, the fashionable foursome lights up right out of the gate on full-length debut If All Here Now. Led by NYC transplant Anastasia Dimou, Feathers' goth-hued electro thrives in the era of New Order and Depeche Mode, brought to life by a cast of heavy hitters, including a mix by Steven DePalo, who's worked with fellow dark wave synths Cold Cave. Zola Jesus producer Brian Foote lays hands on the apocalyptic "Believe," giving it a signature ominous undertone. Starter "In the Land of the Innocent" balances a creeping, sinister frame with an energetic, Eighties pop building block. If All Here Now never gets joyous or bright, it's inviting all the same.
