[MP3] Givers: “Up, Up, Up” // playing Lex in February

I was chatting with my good buddy Ross Compton the other day when he dropped a quick tip about a new band that would be stopping by Lexington in a couple weeks. So check out this new track and then come see them Feb 12 at Al’s Bar.

MP3: Givers – Up, Up, Up
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve had a conversation in the past month about how Vampire Weekend’s debut kicked butt and their sophomore record dropped a bit short, I’d have quite a few dollars. And while “Up, Up, Up” doesn’t sound exactly like it’s an outtake from that record, I think it scratches an itch left unscratched since I first heard their self titled debut. It’s a quirky, poppy track that pulses with life. And hey — added bonus: guitar solo!
