Listening to Brooklyn's Small Black is like those times your musician friends drunk dial you at three in the morning so they can sing a song they just came up with into your voicemail for safe keeping. If only our friends had the songwriting chops of these dudes. "Kings Of Animals" is the b-side to a limited seven-inch Transparent put out for "Despicable Dogs" and, like that song, is gritty and sloppy and totally endearing. The band play The Bell House in Brooklyn tomorrow with Free Energy, which means showers of hooks (and beer) all night long.
