Tickley Feather - "Don't Call, Marylin" (MP3)

by Eleanore Catolico

15 October 2009


You would be right to expect something a little more than “out there” from Philadelphia’s Annie Sachs, what with a name like Tickley Feather and all. She conjures up strange pop song-spells in step with her Paw Tracks cohorts, Black Dice and Animal Collective. Her upcoming album, Hors D’Ouevres, will be out next Tuesday, October 20th. Listen to “Don’t Call, Marylin”, a lo-fi pastiche of nursery rhyme rhythm, strung out keyboards, and watery-alien vocals, and check out her tour dates while you’re at it.

// Notes from the Road

"There’s a preciousness to McCarter and the rest of the mostly young band. You want to freeze the moment, to make sure they are taking it all in too. Because it’s going to change.
