When an artist has the opportunity to cover a song -- especially one far outside their musical comfort zones -- the end results are always interesting.
Young the Giant
MusicFestNW returns to Portland, Ore., this fall for its 13th annual run with a number of top-name acts in tow. This year’s multi-venue festival brings performances by more than 150 bands and artists — Neko Case, Young the Giant, Animal Collective and the Head and the Heart, to name a few — during the week of Sept. 3-8.
For a year-old record that peaked outside the Top 40 of Billboard's album chart, Young the Giant's self-titled debut is enjoying a surprisingly long promotional campaign. The latest step in the band's continued quest to rule your iPod and/or Spotify queue: an official video for the third single, 'Apartment.'
