Horse Feathers, David Ramirez (Back Room)

When: Wed., March 18, 9 p.m. 2015

For last year’s So It Is With Us, Portland, Oregon’s Horse Feathers shed some of the doleful skin of their elegant folk-rock melancholy. Leader Justin Ringle had almost ended the project in exhaustion and emotional overload, so he decided to reboot with a puff of optimism. The results suggest Iron & Wine’s recent full-band records linked with the lithe lyricism of Cat Stevens’ first decade of making music. It’s a bit tawdry, sure, but Ringle’s voice remains an exquisite instrument, both in happiness and despair. —Grayson Haver Currin
