“On A Frozen Beach” finds Seattle’s Feral Children traveling a slightly different path for their upcoming sophomore release, Brand New Blood. Where their debut Second To The Last Frontier featured ferocious yells and wild erratic percussion quite true to their given moniker, “On A Frozen Beach” is in comparison quite tame. Those early elements remain, but they are now masked by a so-called return to civilization.
If the rest of Brand New Blood follows suit, we may be looking at the earliest of contenders for the top albums of 2010. The album hits in early January courtesy Sarathan Records (although it’ll be available digitally next week).
