Young the Giant
Formerly local and still locally sympathetic pop-garage band Young The Giant used to be the Jakes, but new names make new friends and new songs make big connections between class of 00 mandatory party jammers the Strokes and class of 10 party jammer Vampire Weekendwith a little bit of Arcade Fire, too, or whatever you call it when you try and find the three common chords between Pavement and U2. In shortthis is ready for the radio, for the road, for the first song on some Mediafire MP3 mix twittered to some kid whose heart itself is set to twitter a bit when it gets that first bit of seasonal romantic attention. See you in somebodys dreams, guys.
