Feeding People play a delightful brand of fuzzy-buzzy garage rock seasoned with reverby vocals and spooky-circus guitar riffs. At times, they’re reminiscent of the Doors (but if the Doors had made it to the late ‘70s.) Another way to conceptualize Feeding People is to imagine local band Death Hymn Number 9 on a few bumps of mescaline followed by a Valium chaser. Singer Jessie Jones’ voice pushes the overdrive to its limits, resulting in a sweet spot of fuzzy goodness. And while they specialize in revving up the crowd with their punk rock spirit, they’re more than a one-trick band. Dig the song “Island Universe,” sad, wistful and introspective, it's a soft cushion amidst this band’s jagged repertoire.
