Thriftworks is one of the most prolific producers today, and he’s set to prove that once again with a new EP, The Feather and the Sword, set to drop on March 6th. The first single, “Flap Jack’s Revenge,” is an early indication that this release could shape up to be his best yet.
Thriftworks seems to specialize in thumbing his nose to traditional pop music, while constructing supremely detailed soundscapes that conjure lush and swampy imagery. “Flap Jack’s Revenge” is an engaging and original sound that ruffles feathers and sends shivers down your spine. As with anything that breaks new musical ground, sometimes it takes more than a first listen. Each track is densely layered, drawing the audience into a state of contemplative meditation. Beautifully strange, The Feather and the Sword represents the maturation of a wholly unique sound. Ghostly lyrics that tickle the senses are nestled into futuristic instrumentation and deep intonations of bass.

To celebrate the new music, Thriftworks is embarking on an extensive two month national headlining tour, starting on March 9th to coincide with the release of The Feather and the Sword. Highlights include a four night Colorado run, a long anticipated return to the Midwest including the Miramar in Milwaukee, plus select dates in the Northeast and Southeast regions. A few special dates have yet to be announced, but the tour schedule can be seen below. Further information can be found by keeping up with Thriftworks on Facebook!
