“If you were going to bet on one band to come out of this year's CMJ fest with a buzz like the kind that followed Vampire Weekend and Surfer Blood in years past," writes The Wall Street Journal, "Young the Giant would be an excellent pick.”

And further to that, in a completely separate article the same publication contends, “From Newport Beach, California, Young the Giant draws on its European and Middle Eastern ethnic roots to enrich its vivid, vibrant rock.  They’re at CMJ in anticipation of next week’s release of their superb self-titled debut album that rings with unexpected arrangements and tasty vocal harmonies.”

Listen to the brand new album and see for yourself by liking the band on Facebook to unlock the full album stream.

Young the Giant have two more performances left at this year's CMJ Music Marathon and if you subscribe to the educated opinions of MTV, The NY Times and The Wall Street Journal, then you definitely don't want to miss out! Show information is as follows:
