It shouldn’t take the usual, tired marginalizations like ‘progressive folk rock’ or ‘acoustic powered pop’ or ‘singer/songwriter based music’ to get you to listen to Fuller Still’s first full length disc. It should take simple straight talk and here it is: Fuller Still is a damn good band and Color and Feeling is a damn fine disc.

The Minneapolis quartet – Josh Brecht – guitar, vocals, Gail Brecht – keyboards vocals, Graham Peterson – drums and Justin Rimbo – bass, vocals – blend a refreshing sense of folk/rock with poignant, somewhat spiritual lyricism.

My favorite song here is Gail’s achingly beautiful Long For You. It’s a gorgeous piano ballad that is, quite honestly, one of the prettiest songs I’ve heard in some while. Compared To No One is a close second, a new band look at how we judge when we have no right to. With lyrics that look into all our corners, other resounding tracks include: Greasy Wheel, A Little White Noise, Her Skyline and How.

Fuller Still, if the music gods have any ears at all (and who can blame them if they’ve all gone deaf with all the noise around) are a band we can look forward to hearing more from in the years ahead.

  • Missing You
  • Her Skyline
  • Time to Learn
  • How
  • Greasy Wheel
  • Sweet, the Thought
