LA band Fell Runner pulled off a rare feat on their self-titled debut album, cooking up a spicy mix of African rhythms, New Wave guitar a la Television and XTC plus s sprinkling of West Coast vocal harmonies. Their new single Dream Catching sees them digging a little deeper with a colourful patchwork of guitar interaction and the rhythm section playing catch. It may sound like things are falling apart, but it's actually carefully planned spontaneity by four smart music students.
Dream Catching was recorded and mixed with Theo Karon at Hotel Earth in LA. The band is working on the songs for their next album and will try out the new stuff at their Monday night residency at the Bootleg Theater.
