This week's music feature is the story of the fledgling music collective FarFetched. RFT Music writer Ryan Wasoba describes the group early in his story: "The FarFetched Collective is exactly what its name implies, a once-improbable union of musicians across race, gender and genre lines. To its figurehead Damon Davis, the title means something else. 'I was trying to think of something that would say what's next, what's left field,' Davis says. 'I think it really describes what we're doing, something out of this world. I have a real space obsession, like space travel and futurism. FarFetched is like that. We are the weird, we are the innovators, at least in my mind.'"
