When Black Kids played the Athens Popfest in Athens, Georgia, they were immediately proclaimed the next best thing. The band got nationwide attention by multiple music sources, from NMW, Vice, Myspace, and even the indie douches Pitchfork. Yet, most of the press changed their tune after the release of their debut album, Partie Traumatic. But in the smoking hot mess that was their record, were bright spots, songs that were actually fun and great. Among those, Hurricane Jane, our song of the day. So let's just hope they get it right next time.
