On their second album, Winter Pageant [KLP061], The Softies move forward with focused delight. Winter Pageant is the drama of utter melancholia documenting the broken promises, missed phone calls, conversations stalled, love lost. Colossal tasks recorded two guitars deep, forming a new Iliad, chapters on brave deeds and the power of love on the move. You can live for love, or you could live for the splendid cascade of guitar on guitar, voice over voice: The Softies.

It is The Softies combination of Jen Sbragia (All Girl Summer Fun Band) and Rose Melberg (Tiger Trap, Gaze, Go Sailor); feathers and thorns, fawn and fearless, fable and friction.

Winter Pageant was recorded by Stuart Hallerman (Soundgarden, KARP) at his Avast! recording studio in Seattle, Washington.

“…Their best songs are the saddest, where the guitar line suggests something falling—leaves, rain, tears, hopes. If the division between pop and rock separates people who believe in romance and people who demystify it, the Softies walk the line with gymnastic grace.” – Spin
