Some Kind of Animal is a Pittsburgh based neo-folk band who released their latest eponymous album this Spring via the Get Hip Records Folk Series.

After killing it at the Deutschtown Music Festival a few weeks a go, this week they are all over WYEP as the featured band on The Local 913. as well as cover band to this month’s print edition of Sound Scene Express.
Today I bring you the music video to my bud’s Ben favorite track on the album, “Midnight.” Created by Nick Francis and starring actress/dancer Hannah Vassallo, the images match the mood and atmosphere to the song perfectly.

The band has been a blog fave for awhile and I am really looking forward to what they do next.

Performing “Clouds” live on air at the WDVE Morning Show Coffeehouse on Wednesday, July 6, 2016. Some Kind of Animal play Wigle Wkiskey Barrelhouse at the 4th Annual Deutschtown Music Festival on Saturday, July 9 at 4PM. #DTownMF

“Some Kind of Animal started as a side project between close friends & longtime collaborators Anthony Jardine & Tim Mulhern. Somewhere along the way the side project turned into the songwriters main primary focus. Songs laced with lyrical imagery and melodic harmonies spun throughout them are set in a musical beds that are a part modern, part timeless vibe. They have spent the majority of 2015 writing and recording their upcoming debut LP that is being produced by Tyler Watkins of the band Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s at Postal Recording Studio in Indianapolis. Early returns of those sessions are slated for a late 2015/early 2016 release.”

Some Kind of Animal is a chamber rock band from Pittsburgh who make their debut live performance this Sunday (1/10) at Spirit in Lawrenceville to celebrate the release of their debut self-titled album. Joining the fun will be The End of America from Philly and blog fave Morgan Erina. I want to thank Anthony Jardine (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
