Undercover Wildflower“ by Junglefowl

The first and only single from this Ypsi based fun ‘n’ fuzz duo out of Ypsilanti is, as they admit,  reminiscent of something meshing the octave-pedal pushing blues riffs of the White Stripes with something sorts St. Vincent-y. They play the Blowout on Friday night at Paycheck’s.
