Furslide is an alternative rock band from New York, NY. They have released only one full-length album, called "Adventure", which was released on Meanwhile..., a sublabel of Virgin Records created by Nellee Hooper, on October, 6th 1998.

History[edit]

Their lead vocalist, Jennifer Turner, was playing the Tigerlily tour with Natalie Merchant as a guitarist, when they formed Furslide together with Jason Lader and Adam MacDougall in early 1997. Furslide was the first band on Nellee Hooper's new label Meanwhile... when they were signed in 1998. They released their debut album titled Adventure in fall 1998 and played a couple of shows subsequently in the US, the UK and all across Europe (for example opening for Lenny Kravitz on October 8, 1998 in Detroit, they also were the support act for Kula Shaker, Alanis Morissette and Ben Folds). In 1999 they dissolved, supposedly because of disappointing record sales.

The music of Furslide is diverse and multifaceted. Turner names Joni Mitchell, Chrissie Hynde and Natalie Merchant as influences.

They have also had a track featured on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer soundtrack.
