Wisely’s Long-Lost “Gospo Feel” Album Finally Sees The Light After 21 Years

Gospo Feel Vintage Collector Card

“Gospo Feel” finally sees the light today, released 21 years after it’s recording. All randy and chemical from several years of incessant touring, we booked time at The Terrarium studio in Minneapolis, ready to lay down our best road-tested material.

Transparent recording process reveals all. Turning on to Ryan Adams hit me like a thunder bolt.

Transparent recording process reveals all. In the midst of yearning for someone who doesn’t feel the same about you, who of us hasn’t wished that they’d have played it a bit cooler? Stayed aloof. Given less. Kept your stock high in the eyes of someone you wish would love you back? Good luck with that. […]
