Last week a buddy of mine got me a free ticket to a concert. I was just coming back from a vacation to DC. I was really tired and not sure I wanted to go. I had never even heard of this artist before and hadn’t taken the time to listen to any of his music beforehand. But then I thought about how I had not been to a concert in over a year and decided it would be good for me to get out and see a new band.
I was really glad I did. It was an awesome show. Maybe it was because I went in with no expectations, but it was really refreshing to discover a new band that I like. The artist is called Youth Lagoon and I have been listening to them a lot lately. They feel like kind of a mix between St. Vincent and El Ten Eleven. Check it out.
