Barna Howard // Snowblind Traveler

"Quite a Feelin' doesn't just sound like something written in the '70s—it looks and feels like an old LP that you stumbled upon in a musty cardboard box at a garage sale. From the faded cover photo and outmoded typography to the vintage production and the stark Townes Van Zandt-style country-folk, Quite a Feelin' could easily pass for a lost classic by a beloved cult artist." -Portland Mercury
"You can hear those influences throughout Confederate Burial, his second album as Snowblind Traveler (which he's reissuing on vinyl this week), from "Lobster," a song carried by a loose acoustic melody, whistles and colorful jaunts of piano, to "Osprey," a dark, murmuring track led by eerie, echoing tremolos of mandolin. The carefully crafted hooks and song arrangements nod to his biggest inspirations, the Beatles and the Beach Boys. But the lyrics are haunted by the ghosts of the Civil War." -Willamette Week
