"Feedback Time" is the most recent album (released Sept. 28, 2015) by Portland-based road warriors Mandarin Dynasty. This is what the Portland Mercury had to say about it:
"...an album of Arthur Russell references, bottomless nostalgia, and love gone wrong. Combining well-rendered songwriting with playful arrangements, the album nods to decades of clever heartbreak pop as a host of instruments make walk-on appearances over an all-star backing band. It manages to find some magical place between sincerity and levity without feeling forced or heavy-handed, and contains at least one song that should reasonably become a cherished standard of karaoke duets."
