8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 15 October 2009
As we all know Spiral Stairs (real name Scott Kannberg) was a founding member of Pavement and Preston Scool of Industry. 'The Real Feel' is his first official solo album and it's sounds suprisingly professional for S.S. After his work fronting Preston School of Industry i assumed that S.S was only capable of knocking out lo-fi reworkings of his best moments with Pavement yet it would seem that his palette has evolved somewhat since those days and he has become quite a suave songwriter and arranger. I'm hearing a big R.E.M influence in this collection of songs and coupled with S.S's obvious love of country tinged indie rock 'The Real Feel' sounds suprisingly refreshing to my ears. His voice has grown in confidence and the playing is also pretty amazing. S.S is joined by Jon Auer (of The Posies, Big Star) as well as fellow Preston School of Industry bandmates Matt Harris and Darius Minwalla who add tasteful instrumentation and atmosphere to these tracks. There's an obvious shift in emphasis going on here, tracks are mature, slick, well arranged and as far removed from the early Preston stuff as can be. A bit of shock at first but it's nice to hear Spiral rise to the challenge and step things up a little.
