Friday Freebie: Five Feet - The Algorithmic Circumstance of the Misguided Traveler

Based in Manchester, NH, Five Feet are making epic indie rock. Their latest album, The Algorithmic Circumstance of the Misguided Traveler, is filled with songs that are completely unique and stop just shy of being quirky. The closest comparison I can make is that it's a less folk based version of Neutral Milk Hotel, but that could just be their use of horns and the album title that are giving me that vibe. Take the album opener, "Think it Over." It's a plodding, hypnotic song focused on vocals. All instruments seem to swirl around the lead singer (unfortunately I'm not seeing her name anywhere online), meandering off until they are needed again. It's a beautiful song that will completely suck you in, with the only question being how many more times you listen to it before diving into the rest of the album.

You can listen to "Think it Over" below. The Algorithmic Circumstance of the Misguided Traveler is available now for the "name your price" option on Bandcamp. If you do choose the free option, be sure to at least give Five Feet a follow on Facebook.
