On September 17, Kenny Feinstein, frontman for Portland, Oregon-based roots-bluegrass-punk outfit, Water Tower, will release Loveless: Hurts To Love, a tribute to My Bloody Valentine, on Portland, Oregon-based Fluff & Gravy Records. As Feinstein’s debut solo album, it will contain all eleven tracks from the My Bloody Valentine classic, plus “Swallow” from their 1991 Tremolo EP.
Feinstein played the majority of the instruments on the record, but enlisted the help of Kaphan and Kazor and infamous singer-songwriter Richard Buckner, who lent his voice and ukelele.
How was Feinstein’s love of Loveless born? …
“I forced myself to listen to Loveless over and over because I did not understand it. I was confused by the sounds coming from it. Finally, when listening to ‘Loomer’ while driving around a mall in Fort Lauderdale I had an epiphany during the chorus. I could not tell if the sound was being made by a human, a synth, a guitar, a bass or anything, but I did not care, all I could gather was that it was the most blissful sound I had ever heard.” ~ Kenny Feinstein
