An ambitious rock band that has roots from Santa Cruz to Oakland and beyond, Feed Me Jack is putting out an EP, Ultra Ego, in two days! They’ve described their genre-bending style as alternative, indie, experimental, progressive rock, and math rock, and I hear a little soul in there too.
The adventurous lead single “Emergency” has lush vocal harmonies, electro asides, latin inspired grooves, and some sweet riffage. It covers a lot of ground but never jams it down your throat. It flows over you and inspires the imagination, inviting you on a journey where you genuinely don’t know where you’re going.
Over three previous releases, they’ve covered The Beatles, Steely Dan, Weezer, and Department of Eagles. In other words, they draw from a wide variety of resources. Check out the Ultra Ego EP on Thursday, and watch out for their next Bay Area show!
