Young the Giant were in New York City last night performing at the Mercury Lounge and following fast on the heels of that performance has been a ton of press.

First, said that "My Body," the first single from the debut album, "forces you to immediately hit repeat." Reviewer Chad Grischow then went on to recommend "I Got" and "Apartment" as stand-out tracks that "show this band has plenty to offer."

Then AOL's gave a glowing concert review and peppered it with some quotes from their interview with vocalist Sameer Gadhia. They seemed most impressed with the band's sense of fun.

Rounding out what are only a handful of write-ups we're reporting to you, CMJ got on-board. Their Q&A with Sameer touches on everything from the band's ethnic diversity to why they chose to be with us at Roadrunner.
