Quasi Featuring Birds on LP + Download

Quasi consists of Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss, both of whom possess impressive indie rock credentials. Sam has recorded and/or toured with Heatmiser, Elliott Smith, Built to Spill and more. He also performs solo under the Blues Goblins moniker. Janet has played with The Go Betweens, Junior High, and Elliott Smith, as well as pounded the skins with Sleater-Kinney.

Quasi formed in Portland, Oregon in 1993 and released their first recording, a self-titled cassette, that same year. 1995 saw the release of compilation Early Recordings, and two years later they joined the roster of Up Records. Up released their next three albums: R&B Transmogrification (1997), Featuring Birds (1998), and Field Studies (1999).

Quasi creates an incredibly large sound within the limitations of a two person band. Much of their signature style was originally derived from the use of a Roxichord (a unique hybrid keyboard) and Sam's acidic lyrics coupled with Janet's deft drumming and honeyed backing vocals. The duo fleshed out each album with a number of different instruments at their disposal.

Pop songs don't have to be about nonsense and fluff. Pop songs don't have to auto-asphyxiate in a plastic bag of pretentious aspirations, either. Quasi knew this and their second official full-length, Featuring Birds, proves it.
