Editorial Review

"Goodness Gracious," the second album from Philadelphia's Blood Feathers, is an old-school rock-and-roll record, filled with songs that are meant to be heard in old, rickety bars where bands play two sets and the only beer on tap is cheap and American. They'll play just one set at the Black Cat on Thursday while opening for Seas, but that will be enough time to hear the group's sharp take on plenty of classic sounds, from rockabilly-tinged stompers to Bo Diddley-inspired romps to fuzzy psych folk. It's like a compilation of deep album cuts from lost records of 35 years ago.
