Blessed Feathers Album Review
Blessed Feathers – Order of the Arrow (La Societe Expeditio)
By Joshua M. Miller
To say Wisconsin folk duo Blessed Feathers are madly in love with making music would be an understatement. Their debut full-length, Order of the Arrow, draws inspiration and motivation from their busy year of travels and singer Donivan Berube’s proposing earlier last year to collaborator Jacquelyn Beaupre on stage. Recording again with producer Kevin McMahon, who worked on the band’s 2012 EP Peaceful Beasts in an Ocean of Weeds, the duo fires straight as a arrow with the album’s eleven tracks and take their sound to dynamic new levels. Rustic and adventurous, the song carry a late night or early morning beauty that promises to stick with you after the song finishes. Unlike the EP, Beaupre takes on lead vocals for several of the tracks and does so quite ably. The album shows the duo’s tightening bond in sound and life. It’s a big new wide world but Blessed Feathers are up for the challenge.
