Feathers is the fifth album by Dead Meadow. It was released in 2005 by Matador Records and now reissued by Xemu Records under license. The band was shifting from pure 60's-70's heavy psych sounds to a more gentle and layered new/psych sound. The different approach shocked current fans and gained lots of new ones as well as garnering solid underground praise. Revered and as equally hated this divisive record would be a landmark in the band's history and important piece of the puzzle that has kept the boys rocking and relevant.
