Track of the Day: Milk Music - I've Got a Wild Feeling

Milk Music is definitely one of my favorite up-and-coming bands.  Out of Olympia, Washington, the group is a great throwback to the glory days of 1980s indie rock, when "hardcore" was transitioning into "alternative".  On this track especially, with the driving, melodic guitars and strained croon of the vocals, they sound like they could be the reincarnation of Minnesota legends Husker Du.  This is not a band that is gonna get cute with the hipster stuff, this is just classic no-bullshit American songcraft, delivered with authentic rawness and energy.  They are the type of band that you listen to and feel like you've stumbled upon the best rock band in the world when they're just jamming out in someone's basement without giving a damn.

After a handful of self-released EPs, Milk Music signed to Fat Possum just this week and delivered this gem of a single.  Their Fat Possum debut Cruise Your Illusion is set to be released on April 2nd.
