After going on a brief hiatus and putting down his guitar for the first time in 15 years, Horse Feathers' lead singer Justin Ringle realized he desperately needed to have more fun with music. The group's new album, "So It Is With Us" is Ringle's transition from sad and quiet to upbeat and spirited. The album is unlike any of their previous releases; it features stronger drums and bass, powerful violins and climactic tempos with intros that build energy.

Last night Off Broadway played host to a contingency of music fans excited to hear and witness Horse Feathers' subdued, folk-Gothic-orchestral magic in the flesh. Opener, Caroline Smith (whose vocals sound surprisingly like Joanna Newsom) and the Goodnight Sleeps offered a toe tapping, hand clapping, high energy, folk-rock show.
