Dance Party

The Australian band Youth Group traffics in catchy, inoffensive rock, and their lead singer's voice reminds me of a less powerful version of Tim Booth, the lead singer of the band James. I like them. Enough. Their new record comes out in the U.S. on April 7 (the day they also start a monthlong Tuesday-night residency at the New York club Pianos). I'm bringing them up because their new video, for "Two Sides," features the band spliced into what is either an authentic or a brilliantly recreated home video of a 1980s middle school house party. Around 1:55 is when it really picks up, party-wise. The song’s pretty infectious the whole way through.
