FERAL FUTURE: Come Out Swinging: 12” EP

Sounds like some lost artifact from the early ‘90s, a bit like Babes In Toyland. The playing is raw, and there’s a lot of attitude in the vocal delivery as well as the overall execution of the songs. I would imagine their live shows have more energy than the recorded material. This isn’t bad, but it doesn’t really grab ahold of your attention either. “Fughandi” sounds like two songs smashed together, with only one that should have been fleshed out more, and the other allowed to die in the rehearsal room. The ending of the song, where they sing: “You take and take and take…” is good, and I thought it was a new song. The part before that was meh. This record would have been more effective as a single.
