Invisible Familiars is a Brooklyn-based band led by songwriter Jared Samuel. Jared constructs his songs with a keen ear for melody, and with an enthusiasm for letting those melodies take the sometimes eccentric paths they want to. The songs are concise, surprising, and a lot of fun. The band includes guitarist Robbie "Seahag" Mangano and percussionist Tim Kuhl, who, along with Jared, Sean Lennon, and Charlotte Kemp Muhl also comprise the band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. Jordyn Blakely sings and drums with the Familiars, and David Garland welcomes the band to WNYC to perform and talk about their new album "Disturbing Wildlife."
