Don't Sleep On: The Black Kids

Click to enlarge

Over here on 88Nine RadioMilwaukee, we have been playing "I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance" by a group out of Jacksonville, Florida called "The Black Kids". The group has been listed in Rolling Stones' "Ten Artists Who Are Bringing the Future of Music, Today".

...since Black Kids have gathered so much blog buzz over the past few months that they're already playing sold-out gigs for fans such as the Beastie Boys' Mike D. That acclaim is due mostly to the freewheeling indie-rock songs they posted on MySpace, earning them comparisons to Arcade Fire and the Cure. But with coed harmonies and snatches of R&B, Black Kids have a more classic pop sound than your typical indie-rock band — and they're more humble.

Don't sleep on the Black Kids. They will be playing in Chicago on May 7th with Cut/Copy at the Abbey Pub.
