Formed in 2009, Oakland based indie rockers, Felsen have released
their 3rd album, "Breaking Up With Loneliness."
The album is the culmination of 2 years of constant
performing, touring, wood-shedding and songwriting and now they’ve
clearly produced their finest effort to date.The new album’s producer,
Jonathan “JP” Parker (who has worked with Wilco, the Fray, Andrew
Bird, the Redwalls & Liz Phair) early on in the process said “the new
songs may very well be the best batch of raw songs that I have
encountered since Wilco's Summerteeth (period)”. The finished songs
are anything but raw, rather they have re-emerged as fully realized
instant pop classics. Felsen was joined in the studio by legendary
drummer Michael Urbano (Smashmouth, CAKE, 3rd Eye Blind, Sheryl Crow,
Cracker...) and slide guitar virtuoso Johnny Vernazza (Elvin Bishop,
Norton Buffalo, Marshall Tucker Band, Van Morrison). The album was
100%funded by Felsen’s fans through Kickstarter.
Felsen has opened for National acts:
Camper Van Beethoven, Marcy Playground, One Eskimo, Stone Foxes and
Luce. Felsen also has 3 songs on the Rock Band Video Game!
"Felsen's music is both smart and sexy and is always catchy. It
demands repeated listening. This is for Alt Rock fans of Wilco,
Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Beck AND fans of the classic sound of
Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and the Beatles."
