My New Music: Family of the Year

22 Aug

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t put these guys below on the blog after their album has been on repeat for me the past month plus.  Without further adieu, your music for today.

Four words: Family of the Year

Who? A four-piece indie outfit from LA with ties to different parts of the country and across the pond.

What?  A kickass, highly talented band throwing you a bit of indie-rock and pop, folk, island vibes and more in a way that works and will have you hand clapping and boot stomping in no time.

Why you should listen? Just play their new album, Loma Vista, and you’ll understand exactly why.

A reason you’ll be excited?  If you like GROUPLOVE, you’re going to really dig these guys as they feature an array of vocals and variety of instruments to craft a fun, uplifting sound.

Why I’m excited: This band has been around since 2009 but I only recently discovered them and can’t wait to dive into earlier works but am more impressed with their most recent album which is seriously on repeat a few times a week.

If you like: GROUPLOVE, The Belle Brigade, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Lumineers, GIVERS.

Final thoughts: It’s just some damn good music so listen up.
