Everyone remembers when Lake Fever posted their session with The Features a couple of months back, right? Of course you remember. It was good stuff. Well they've finally gotten around to posting the horn-, gang-vocal- and general-antics-bolstered rendition of the fan favorite "Thursday," and you can watch it above. Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I feel it's imperative to note that, yes, a couple of Cream Teamers are present in the video. The fine folks at Lake Fever invited several local Features fans and supporters to check out the sesh and contribute some BGVs, and Gold and I were pleased to be included--our excitement will be apparent from Gold's jubilant, arms-to-the-sky, praise-and-worship style dance maneuvers toward the end.
I apologize for ruining virtually every (attempted) one-shot of Matt Pelham with my bespectacled omnipresence. But hey, I lip-synced in order not to ruin the take with my inevitable pitchiness. So you're welcome. You can slake the symptomatic thirst of Lake Fever-induced Features Fever by checking them out Thursday night, Nov. 5, at Cannery Ballroom with The Whigs.
Oh, and since we're on the subject, I thought I'd mention that Lake Fever (in conjunction with American Songwriter) has also posted a session with a little band by the name of Travis. Well, half of Travis. But it's the guitar-y, sing-y half of Travis, and that's the part of bands most people seem to care about. Frownie face for the rhythm sections of the world. See Fran Healy and Andy Dunlop playing "More Than Us" below, and see the rest here.
