Saturday Night Soundtrack


I discovered the Feelies in '88 through a college friend with their album Only Life that had a great cover of the Velvet Underground's "What Goes On". They really sounded like the Velvets to me, but unlike Lou Reed and John Cale, these guys looked kinda nerdy, which I thought was great.

This is their first album, Crazy Rhythms. It was reissued this year, and it's a great record! There's a little bit of everything in there - some Television-style jams, Velvet guitar sounds, and lyrics that would make David Byrne jealous.
