Touted by both the NY Times and The Wall St Journal, Southern California’s Young The Giant rode a wave of old media buzz into this year’s CMJ. According to their publicist, they were one of the most talked about bands at CMJ, however, despite the apparent chatter, I wasn’t able to find any NYC show reviews while researching this post. In any event, the band released their self-titled debut album digitally on Tuesday (Oct 26) via Roadrunner Records. If you’d like to hear the Joe Chiccarelli produced record for yourself, you can stream it on their Facebook page or on Soundcloud.
