Based on the name, I was hoping there actually were some Black folks in Black Kids. Thankfully, there’s brother and sister Ali and Reggie Youngblood, who make up two-fifths of this Jacksonville, Florida outfit. I’m just getting to know them, but here’s what music publication NME has to say about them:
You know when you wake up in the morning after really good sex and the sun is shining and you open the blinds to hear the little birds singing? Black Kids’ dreamy compositions sounds just like that. . .
Of the things on their EP "Wizard of Ahhs", I like "Hurricane Jane". If you want to check them out, hit their MySpace page, and if you dig what they’re doing, the EP is available for free download.
