Recent Frenchkiss signee Young Man will be opening for his label-mates Local Natives at their Beach at Governors Island show on August 7th. We Barbarians, a Cali band with a few other NYC shows that are listed below, also open. Tickets are still on sale.
Young Man, the brainchild of Colin Caulfield, has its debut EP, Boy, set for proper release on Frenchkiss on October 12th. The mini record is streaming in full here, and the first track off it is available above. It only takes ones quick listen to hear the Animal Collective influence in his music. Appropriately, Animal Collective & Panda Bear are sone of the artists Caulfield has covered and posted to his popular YouTube account. There you'll also find great covers of others artists that Young Man fits right in with - Beach House, Ariel Pink, Grizzly Bear, Deerhunter and more. You can watch some of them below, and download the Beach House cover above.
