Music Monday: Apartment by Young the Giant

Heard this song on XM Radio and downloaded it right away. Great tune by a great band.

Young the Giant is another great band out of California — Irvine, to be specific. They started out as a band called “The Jakes”, but in 2009 changed their name and put aside school to focus on music. A few minor hits later, a couple of shows on Jimmy Kimmel and Jools Holland, and a huge following in Europe later — and here they are.

What do I like about this band? Besides the fact that they actually write intelligent lyrics and have musical talent, the extreme cultural diversity of the band results in a fantastic sound. Even unplugged, which this performance is. Haven’t seen this level of diversity/talent since Vampire Weekend — and they’re just as good, if not better. Go ahead and listen for yourself:
