The Feelies, an influential new wave band from the ‘80s, reunited in 2008, and for much of 2009 they’ve been playing shows all across the United States. To coincide with a performance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New York, the band has rereleased Crazy Rhythms and The Good Earth.

Though they were never hugely popular, The Feelies were a big part of the indie music scene in the 1980s. Michael Stipe of R.E.M. has listed the band as one of his influences. Named after a pleasure device in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, The Feelies do just that: provide musical pleasure. Album details down below.

"Nils Pihl calls it, "Newtonian engagement", that is, when "an engaged player will remain engaged until acted upon by an outside force". That's "progress".
