The Young Veins - Change
-------------Flipping back and forth between a movie about a smartmouth pregnant teen in stripes and a superhero family in spandex. And with munchies and fighting a tremonsterous headache from last night, there's nothing much better on a Saturday night.
Getting my schleppy rear-end in gear for this post was made easier when I had to look no further than The Young Veins. Formulated by ex-Panic at the Disco members Ryan Ross and Jon Walker, punchy folk-tinged tunes are the forefront of this project. Their debut album Take a Vacation! arrives in three days.
"Change" belongs to anyone with a love of The Hold Steady or Avett Brothers, with each verse sounding more and more like a weekend at Bonnaroo. It sounds like the missing track from Rubber Soul, posessing a pissed-off Paul and John quality to the lyrics and jarring guitars. But if your music reminds me of the Fab Four, you're in good shape.
