The Wild Feathers - Medium Rarities [SIGNED Magnolia Exclusive]
We're thrilled to be the exclusive destination for the new record by The Wild Feathers on vinyl!
Making it ten years as a band is no small feat. And maintaining the raw passion of those early days hustling, playing small rooms and cramming into the back of an old van is even rarer still.
For the Wild Feathers, though, that passion has only grown with time, stronger now than when the beloved band first formed in 2010. Since then, the band has released three critically acclaimed studio albums, one live album and toured with major acts like Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, all while continuously honing their singular blend of Southern rock, Americana roots and heartland pop.
Now, the Wild Feathers are ready to pull back the curtain on their decade together with Medium Rarities, an eleven-song collection of previously unreleased music spanning each incarnation of their still-evolving career. Dave Cobb and Jay Joyce both feature as producers on the collection, with the Feathers themselves serving as co-producers for much of the album. The band will independently release Medium Rarities on November 20th.
In some ways, Medium Rarities is a product of the COVID-19 pandemic. When a major tour with Blackberry Smoke was canceled in March, the band found themselves with unexpected time to reflect on their career so far. Joel King, whom Ben Dumas dubs the band's "archive master," started poking around hard drives of old music, and the idea of a rarities compilation began to take shape.
"We took the time to go through our vault, which is music, demos, covers we’ve done, b-sides — rare things we’ve never released," Ricky Young explains. "We always wanted to do something with it one day but we thought this was as good a time as any."
