Song of the Day: Feral Children

You can't technically download "Jaundice Giraffe" by Seattle's Feral Children, but it's such a good track I'm posting a link to the song here anyway. My buddies in Seattle have been blabbing about their hometown band, calling these guys the next Modest Mouse and stuff. The band sounds much darker than anything Issac Brock's produced lately, though. There's something noisily off-kilter here. I get the TV on the Radio references, and I also hear a bit of another ex-Northwest act, Love as Laughter, mixed with the kind of artsty hardcore that the Blood Brothers championed for years (although these guys are much woodsier, if that makes sense). The band is coming here to play Kimo's on August 17. -- Jennifer Maerz

**Update: Just got a note from the band's publicist: You can download a couple free tracks from Feral Children here:

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
