Knitting Factory Presents
Mother Feather, Yaasss, God Tiny
"If you're feeling this you're my next victim," front-woman Ann Courtney intones with steely-eyed confidence, assuring the audience of motherfeathers ("MFers") of their submission to the cult. With their ferocious and enthralling live show, Mother Feather has ignited a wildfire of followers since hitting the New York club scene in 2010 and attracted the attention of heavy music legend and Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel, who signed the self-proclaimed "pop cock rock" outfit to the label in 2015. Mother Feather is currently wrapping up production on their second LP for Metal Blade.
Epic songs warrant larger-than-life costumes and dance, and a garishly bedazzled Courtney and hype-woman sidekick Elizabeth Carena slither, thrust, and high-kick their way through a set that invokes Marc Bolan's cheeky swagger, Bowie's braggadocio, and the howl and shimmy of a "To Bring You My Love"-era PJ Harvey. NYC rock mainstay Gunnar Olsen occupies an authoritatively savage rhythm section propelled by Chris Foley's blistering one-man guitarmy. This is pop cock rock: anthemic riffs, now-or-never bravado, and tight dance beats bolstered by pop precision and purity of mission.
"'Mother Feather' is the muse," says Courtney. "It is the embodiment of your wildest inspiration. Every song is a
challenge -- to myself and the audience. I want catharsis and I want it now."
"Weaving heavy rhythm and blues with soulful modern alternative pop music. Experiences of transcendental consciousness through post post modern rock n roll. Power to the people music."God Tiny, which officially began in 2009, has undergone many changes throughout its up and down history. 200 shows, 15 members, and 1 cross country road trip later, we have settled in brooklyn. this is now our rock n roll dojo look out for the debut studio album, spring 2016. updates, merch, more shows, and so so so much more to come. ♥
