Great Lakes Feather Company

Great Lakes Feather Company is a unique synthrock band whose very alternative sound is easy to get lost in as it revels in unique musical twists and turns that one wouldn't expect to see coming. While not metal by any stretch of the imagination there are still a lot of cool ideas here which make Great Lakes Feather Company worth checking out. The way they fuse ambient sounds with more traditional hip hop sections really gets me and I especially dig Neptune for that. The generally progressive nature of a lot of the longer songs is cool to and belies the virtuosity of the composers. An important thing to note is that there are a lot of guest stars on their records, this helps to give their music a unique diversity that you don't find in modern pop music. It also means that every song has its own unique twist (because of the different musicians performing on it) thus really keeping things exciting and engaging. So if you're looking for a fresh new alt hip hop act with cool ideas that could change the genre then I strongly recommend you check out these guys!
