Givers – “Meantime”

"Sup Bro-chacho." To the guy in the back left corner.

Welcome back to another edition of Dres’ afro-guitar rhythms kick. Our first stop was in England, our second was Africa, and now we’re back home in the states. Louisiana in particular.  If you’re thinking that Givers sounds familiar there’s a chance that you’re a Vampire Weekend fan. Which means there’s a chance you’re a Paul Simon fan. “Meantime” and their previous single “Up Up Up” will strike you as an ass-kicking “Graceland.” A hyper-active kaleidoscope version that features two sets of drummers.

The Givers made a name for themselves as a great live band being one of the highlights of this past SXSW festival. Their newest record In Light was released in June however their newest track release “Meantime” and the corresponding video came out on Monday giving this post a timely resonance. Sit back and enjoy “Meantime.” It’s like party Paul Simon.
