CD Review: Wild Child Return With New Music From "The Runaround"

From Texas comes the indie-folk/rock of Wild Child with their second album "The Runaround." The album was produced by Ben Kweller and the band was voted "Best Indie Act" and "Best Folk Act" at the 2013 SXSW festival.
The album is a breath of refreshing Americana music with elements of rock, jazz, and folk infused in it. The lead single "Crazy Bird" has a great beat and whistle chorus that is hard not to hum along to. The song runs along the same vein as the band, Of Monster And Men's hit single "Little Talks." They sound antique on the acoustic sway of "Coming Home," before the big drum comes along to bang away the blues. The gentle comfort of "Stitches" and the pop feel of "Anna Marie" shows the maturity within the band. The album closes with the interesting experimentation of "Rillo Talk" and the momentum building "Left Behind."
The new album was released on October 8 through The Noise Company. To find out more about this amazing young band, please visit
