Young The Giant is the first Artist of the Month for 2012, and I knew I had to start things off on the right foot. That's where these guys come in. Young the Giant formed in California in 2004 and have the kind of finessed indie rock that fans of Kings of Leon and Fleet Foxes should really enjoy. If your looking for the hidden meaning behind their name, you wont find any. When asked, they said its meant to be a little "left-field" and evoke curiosity.

I love how these guys mesh together and lay some nice harmonies on top of lead singer's Sameer Gadhia amazing voice. The song that gets me most stoked is their first single, My Body, which comes a little harder than their other stuff and the chorus is sure to inspire serious fist pumping.

Their next single, "Cough Syrup " hit # 3 on Billboards Alternative chart, and the moody cellos and driving guitar riffs help the track jump off. These guys recently released some acoustic "In the Open " sessions that really showcase their raw talent and amazing harmonies. Keep reading to listen.

Who says the 80's sucked ? After going back over some of the big hits of the decade,I realized how rad the music scene in the 80's actually was. Enjoy and if I left out any jams from the 80's that have a special place...

Here's our first mix of 2012, hope you like it!!   This year is poised to be monumental, with great music hitting us from all angles. May the Gods of inspiration shine on you, and may your fires stay forever stoked !...

Its hard to love the unlovable and its easy to write them off as monsters.  But are we called only to love those that love us. I think we are called to a greater love than that. A love that encompasses everyone no matter how...

Hope you like the mix, and I'm always on the hunt for new artists so let me know if you got any hidden gems I should listen to...
