Tune in Tuesday: The Jakes…err, I mean, Young the Giant

A weekly feature hosted by GReads! where we showcase some good tunes! :)

So a couple of years ago, I fell in love with a band called “The Jakes.” They had an EP out that I loved a lot. Here’s a favorite song from it:

Texas Tea by The Jakes
(Yes, the song title makes me a little biased :P)

Then, I kind of got lost in books :) and lost track of them. This year I discovered that they’ve changed their name and hit the big time! They are now “Young the Giant” and here’s another song by them that I love:

Cough Syrup by Young the Giant
