The new Feeding People album, Island Universe, is streaming live over at SPIN.com. Island Universe will be out Feb. 5 on Innovative Leisure.

Beyond the real deal is the unreal deal, and therein lies Feeding People, a band of teenagers making some of the heaviest psychedelic around Decades after the 13th Floor Elevators declared their hallucinatory sense of purpose.

Feeding People was founded and is headed by nineteen-year-old Jessie Jones, who channels the raw power of Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick and Janis Joplin at her most primal as she leads with strong, almost vicious vocals, bellowing blasphemies as if possessed by spirits with a masked sweetness reminiscent of Billie Holiday. Her siren call reeled in Chris Alfaro of Free The Robots who produced some of the band's earliest recordings, all of which were written acoustic and recorded electric in a single sweaty take in a 6'x10' walk-in closet with a 4-track recorder and mic stands made of broom handles taped to fire extinguishers.

After playing only a couple shows, Feeding People became the second band ever invited to play storied electronic music club Low End Theory, where they shared the stage with Radiohead's Thom Yorke. Their sophomore album, Island Universe, was recorded and produced by Jonny Bell of The Crystal Antlers and Hanni El Khatib. Innovative Leisure will release Island Universe on Feb. 5, 2013.
