Portland quartet Summer Cannibals are hungry for more, returning with their sophomore release Show Us Your Mind, self-released via their own New Moss Records on March 3rd. Recorded and mixed by the famed Larry Crane at Jackpot Recording Studios, the album features the sharp Northwest punk-pop sound you fell in love with on their 2013 debut, No Makeup. KEXP is excited to present the worldwide debut of the album's title track, "Show Us Your Mind," which you can stream below.Formed in 2012 by frontwoman Jessica Boudreaux and guitarist Marc Swart, the band took their name from an old Patti Smith song. The young group also takes her punk attitude, infusing it in their fuzzy, garage-pop songs. "It's music that has been made for a long time. It's not like we discovered some brand new thing," says Boudreaux. "But life is short. Why not play music that makes you feel free, and crazy, and like you can do whatever you want?"

You can follow Summer Cannibals on both Twitter and Facebook. The band are playing March 5th at Bunk Bar in Portland, and fingers crossed for some Seattle shows soon.
