Colorfeels release Syzygy on vinyl

Among many releases from local Nashville bands this year, Colorfeels’ debut record “Syzygy” stands out as the most creative and idiosyncratic. 

Co-frontmen Parker Cason and Justin Maurer, alongside bassist Taylor Zachary, drummer Matt Scibilia, and multi-instrumentalist Jared Ziemba, conjure something beyond “genre,” drawing contrasting timbres from across the musical spectrum to paint a broader picture that all blends together effortlessly and comfortably.

From the spacey folk tune “Fun Machine” (with slide guitar passages performed by My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel) to “Unplanned Holiday,” a song reminiscent to Paul Simon’s The Rhythm and The Saints record, the album carries the listener to far away places.

Lyric subjects range from the interpersonal to the existential, from failed love on “Pretty Walk” to mortality on “Insufferably.” They are calmly delivered and represent a level of focus and precision common in bands like Grizzly Bear and My Morning Jacket.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Colorfeels is celebrating the release of the album in Nashville on beautiful 180 gram vinyl at Grimeys and The Groove for $20. You can find out more information about the band at their website, where you can also score a digital copy of the album.
