African American Young Adolescents


I've been listening to Black Kids for a few weeks now, and after seeing their song in the 'On Repeat' section on Pitchfork, I decided it was about time to throw in my two cents on these up and comers. My favorite track by far off of their Wizard of Ahhh's EP has to be 'I'm not gonna teach your boyfriend how to dance with you' , which carries some instrumental similarities to the likes of Arcade Fire in the introduction, and further on, the lo-fi sounding chants of The Go! Team. You're going to have this one stuck in your head. The band is currently playing shows in their native Jacksonville, Florida territory, and surprisingly are unsigned, but I would expect to see these guys on a label and getting out and about very soon. In fact, I'm going to make a label..right now, and sign them. Yes this is very official, and also legal. Check out their myspace for more tracks to download.
