    The influence of The Feelies, “a garage band reimagined by mathematicians, a psychedelic band with no illusions, a folk-rock band hypnotized by repetition, a punk band for introverts,” (Jon Pareles, The New York Times) can’t be overstated. The twin-guitar attack of songwriters and founders Glenn Mercer and Bill Million is the infectious sound of the group. Paired with driving drums and percussion, it has left an indelible mark on the landscape of rock and roll. Reuniting its classic lineup in 2008 for the first time since 1991 for a historic show opening for Sonic Youth in NYC, the band has returned with a vengeance. Here Before, (April 2011, Bar/None Records) their first album of new material in 20 years, captures all the ecstatic energy of their legendary 1980 debut Crazy Rhythms.
