Forever Breathes The Lonely Word
Released: Jan 2007
Label: Cherry Red Records
Ranked alongside the Smiths, Orange Juice, Aztec Camera and Lloyd Cole in the 1980s alternative guitar-pop movement, Felt had an upbeat vibe all their own. While group leader Lawrence Hayward obviously learned much from Television and the Velvet Underground, his songs have a light, spring-stepped, retro sound that sets them apart. Even when the lyrics are as dark as "All the People I Like and Those That Are Dead," the songs skip by like stones across a river.
