Billboard's "Tastemakers" video series presents a closer look at -- and an exclusive performance from -- the cool artists hitting the Billboard Tastemakers chart. The chart in question reflects the top-selling albums each week as noted by an influential panel of indie stores and small regional chains, and amongst the current bands of that ilk are our SoCal newcomers Young the Giant.

The band has just digitally released their self-titled debut album on iTunes, and as Billboard sums it up, the album "features the rousing vocal range of Sameer Gadhia, the jangly guitar pairing of Jacob Tilley and Eric Cannata, and the steady, resonant percussive backbone of Payam Doostzadeh (bass) and Francois Comtois (drums)."
