Above is the troublesome cover art for The Real Feel, the real deal solo debut from Spiral Stairs, neé Scott Kannberg and co-founder of almighty Pavement. You may have already tinkered a bit with Kannenberg's work fronting Preston School Of Industry, but The Real Feel marks his first outing under the pseudonym with which most music nerds still know and sorta miss him. Word according to the Matablog is that the recording went down in Seattle late last year and includes contributions from former members of PSOI and the Posies, as well as Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene. That very same blog is currently streaming new track "Maltese Terrier." Give it a listen, album's out on Matador in every format imaginable on October 20th!
