I have a feeling we'll be hearing quite a bit about Philadelphia's Tickley Feather in the not-so-distant future. She opened Panda Bear's recent Philly show, and she's been picked to support Animal Collective on the second half of their upcoming fall U.S. tour. She seems like an inspired choice, and I imagine her otherworldly, super lo-fi, underwater carnival folk ballads (see "Natural Natural" and "Sex Face") will go over extremely well with AC fans. No word on a full-length at this point, but you can get Tickley Feather split 7"s here and here.
