Family of the Year

24 Mar

In Nicaragua on Saint Patrick’s Day, this one bar had an Irish band playing. Yeah, I know, Saint Patrick’s Day in Nicaragua. That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. But hearing this band, which was playing awful folk tunes, reminded me how uniting live music can be.

While this band doesn’t play Irish folk tunes in a bar in Nicaragua, they certainly have character. Think Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Give a listen to Family of the Year‘s “Chugjug.” They claim their music is a “feel good summer sound” and I don’t doubt it.
