It Calls Your Name

Released well over a year ago, Young the Giant's self-titled debut is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums of the past few years. Of course they're still working it as evidenced by their new video for Apartment, the first song that caught my ear...

The rather understatedly catchy Apartment kicks off an album that can't quite find home with the hipsters or the mainstream yet is quite suitable to the 90s-loving pop enthusiasts that I like to think happen upon this blog on occasion. Turn this one up...

It also doesn't hurt for our readers to know that Jellyfish's own Roger Joseph Manning Jr. played keyboards on Your Side. Bam.

Ignore the rare forays into the trappings of a post-Coldplay musical landscape. They're inevitable and I expect a band of Young the Giant's quality to find a way past them eventually as they realize their own identity. Young the Giant is seemingly worth the early investment.
