Feral Future

Come Out Swinging (Western Medical)

It's tempting to compare any femme-dominated punk band to riot grrrl propagators Bikini Kill, but Feral Future's Come Out Swinging bears a likeness too acute to ignore. Formerly '69 Judas, the rebranded Austin quartet's debut EP detonates a bombastic five-song rendezvous, sopping influences plucked from Eighties' Brits and Nineties lady fury. "College" offers anti-establishment advice, decrying the academic route, with a chorus so trite ("We don't really give a fuck"), you have to scream along. **.5
