The Feelies, 'Here Before' (Bar/None)

7
Here Before
Critical Mass
Release Date: April 12, 2011
Label: Bar/None

by David Menconi

Three decades on, the Feelies' pace is closer to a relaxed amble than the anxious sprint of theirearly-'80s days - and yet they remain instantly, timelessly recognizable. Their first new album in 21 years would have sounded right at home on pre-Nevermind college radio, as guitarists Glenn Mercer and Bill Million spin out one jingle-jangle, pastoral lope after another. And the songs evoke and acknowledge time gone by: "Is it too late / To do it again / Or should we wait / Another ten?" The years have been kind.
