about

Tar Feather is a portuguese leftfield project responsible
for an obtuse approximation to house and techno music,
producing tracks that involve orthodox dance music
in a cocoon of muddy drones and crackled drums.

Heavy Metals is Tar Feather's debut album, written and
recorded between 2010 and 2012, and released by Easy Pieces in 2013.

As its main objective, "Heavy Metals" undertakes a rather unsatisfactory
approach to dance music in its general form, since the applicability
of this set of tracks in a dance-floor context is practically inexistent.

Despite being recognizable, its resemblance to techno, house or dubstep
is far from turning it into a functional tool box; making kicks, hi-hats, snares
and bass lines more colloquial than necessary.

As such, the whole album denotes an exterior and distant perspective
on club music burying its trditional components, in crackle, howlings
and various bric-a-brac.
