Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is Fugaz by The Pinker Tones from the 2008 album Wild Animals on Nacional.

The Pinker Tones - Fugaz (MP3)

With Wild Animals, The Pinker Tones Mr. Furia & Professor Manso show there’s been no letting up following their the success of 2006s The Million Colour Revolution and last year’s remix album, More Colours!. Like most artists belonging to the Nacional entourage, Furia and Manso aren’t content to stick to one genre. The genre du jour on Wild Animals is flashy electro with plenty of falsetto vocals but includes heavy doses of funk and reggae. Conceptually, Furia has stated that their last album was about utopia while the new record is about the actual world we live in. It appears in either state every dance floor will be full so long as The PT are on the PA. If you like what you hear, pick up your copy of the album, made available in physical form today. The duo is kicking things into overdrive this year, signing on for the entirety of the Vans Warped Tour, hitting Seattle 8/9. Additionally, Manso currently has a book of photographs on the market, which includes a stunning array taken from their world travels while on tour. Live a little of one such tour by watching this video of a performance in their Barcelona homeland:
