after a pair of albums under the group nom de plume preston school of industry, pavement co-founder scott kannberg, aka spiral stairs, makes his bona fide solo debut. following an extended sojourn in melbourne, spiral returned to seattle rejuvenated at the end of '08, and commenced recording with a collection of pals including members of preston school of industry, the posies, guitarist ian moore, gersey, and broken social scene's kevin drew. mixed by the posies' jon auer, this album is by far the most crafted and introspective of spiral's post-pavement works. 'the real feel', has a vibe similar to classic 70's albums by fleetwood mac ('then play on'), captain beefhart ('safe as milk'), and guitar god richard thompson, not to mention aussie psych rock icons died pretty.
