They might share a name with the opening cut to the lone EP released by Zach de la Rocha's side project One Day as a Lion, but Long Island's Wild International cook up shuffling folk tunes that are a far cry from "Wild International" the song's abrasive edge. They claim to be strongly influenced by Akron/Family, and it makes sense; A/F's Americana-tinged jams are quirky, but not quite enough to be full-fledged freak folk or experimental, and the same is pretty much true for these guys. Their myspace songs offer a taste of a little something for everyone-- the indie-pop-leaning "For Walls", the shambling country rock of "Oxygen", and the off-kilter "Bandicoots", the complex rhythms and lively picking of which gives off a slight Vampire Weekend vibe. In a scene usually known for hardcore and pop-punk bands, Wild International are out to offer something different. They're off to a good start.

I doubt everyone knows this but, my band, Wild International is now playing this years Bamboozle. I would like to take the time out and sincerely thank everyone that has been supporting us for this contest. We won the grand prize so we have one more round to go through. We'll be playing at Gramercy Theatre at the end of the month for a chance to upgrade our slot to the Main Stage. Hope to see you all there.

The band really did a great job at The Break contest last night and earned that spot on Bamboozle by being the best band in the contest, hands down.
