Portland's Horse Feathers offer up a moving cover of Nirvana's "Drain You" to top off a strong year of musical output for the band.

Portland’s Horse Feathers has already impressed this year with Thistled Spring. Matthew Fiander wrote that Justin Ringle’s singing was in top form and that the album evoked the “sound of rebirth” and went on to discuss how the record ” is bracing because it refuses to wallow anymore. It recognizes all the past’s ache, and gives it a sound, but the album turns itself over to hope in the end.” The band has more in store for us this year with a superb 7-inch single releasing next Tuesday, with a moving cover of Nirvana’s “Drain You” as the A-side, backed by “Bonnet of Briars”. We are extremely proud to present the online premiere of “Drain You” this afternoon. Make sure you pick up the 7-inch release too because, you know, vinyl really does rule.
