Singer and songwriter, gentleman and liar, gadfly and firefly and fall guy, indispensable, Michael Feuerstack is a man who lives and makes music in Montreal. Long one of the Canadian scene’s most revered songwriters, across almost 25 years, working under his own name and the past alias Snailhouse, Feuerstack has built an underground canon of crooked and beautiful songs. A little Rilke and a little Bazooka Joe, these easygoing tunes are like fields full of hedge-mazes – teeming with riddles, reveries and hiding places.

The Forgettable Truth (due for release in February 2015 on Forward Music), is a collaborative affair. Michael has assembled a crack crew of familiar accompanists to help flesh out the arrangements: Pietro Amato (Bell Orchestre, Luyas) on keys, Peter Xirogiannis on bass, and Mike Belyea (Jenn Grant) on drums. While you may certainly recognize these contributors from Michael’s earlier records, the combination is new and the results are strikingly unexpected at times. Recorded at Hotel2Tango and at Michael’s home, the album also features vocals by Little Scream and Nick Cobham (Olympic Symphonium), as well as strings by Sebastian Chow. The Forgettable Truth is a trip – posing answerless questions, shining light into dark corners, and binding classic songwriting to adventurous musicality.


[‘Clackity Clack’]…is a heavy and gorgeous piece of music, anguishing and contemplative.” – STEREOGUM

“Wonderfully fragile, heart-wrenchingly power-ful… Feuerstack cuts through your veins and bones like an arctic shower, an icy-clean rinse for the soul.” – BEATROUTE

[‘Clackity Clack’ is]…a plaintive and absorbing song that cuts through the clutter and cacophony of media buzz and nonsense the song itself rails against.” – QUICK BEFORE IT MELTS

…a gently haunting vocal style…well-crafted and pensively atmospheric songs.” – NEW CANADIAN MUSIC
