Featured Release This Week From Givers

Jan 17, 2016

New Kingdom is the second full length release from the Lafayette, Louisiana band Givers.  Two of the group's members, Tiffany Lamson (vocals and percussion) and Taylor Guarisco (vocals and guitar) began playing music together following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  They were forced to leave school and their New Orleans apartment due to the conditions there.  Returning to Lafayette, the duo found they had little to do.  That led them in the direction of making music, and eventually they recruited the other members of Givers.  New Kingdom  follows their successful 2011 debut album.  The band continue their funk/indie fusion, with a more electronic and layered sound this time out.  Dr. John even drops by for a track, perhaps giving Givers a nod as the future of Louisiana music.
