#44 The Feelies – “In Between” – 52 Weeks of 2017 Albums

Two full years before the release of their 1980 debut album the Village Voice dubbed the then-unsigned Feelies “The Best Underground Band in New York”. Fast forward to 2017 and The Feelies, cited by R.E.M. as a major influence, have a new record on the shelves. 40 years in the making, In Between marks just the 6th occasion since their formation in 1976 that New Jersey natives Glenn Mercer, Bill Million & Dave Weckerman have got together under The Feelies moniker to make a record. Their 2nd album after a self imposed 20 year hiatus, In Between finds the boys in a predominately acoustic setting making mostly mellow, pleasant and nice. Savour the slow burn, could be another 20 years before you get the chance again.

Rating: 7.5/10
