Givers came to a local coffee shop/bar to perform a few weeks ago. They were the second act and I had to work the next day and so I left before they came on. My roommate stayed and bought their EP, shared it with me, and I have been regretting my decision to be a responsible employee ever since then.

Their music is utterly infectious. Infectious, joyous, upbeat. Makes you tap your feet and then get up and dance.

And they have a crazy-cool sound. I am an unabashed fan and plan on buying their full-length album when it comes out (soon, hopefully), attending their next nearby concert, and forcing my friends to listen to them.

To the Givers: please, guys, more like this! Fantastic.

Lafayette-based Valcour Records broke from their usual Cajun and zydeco fare late last year to sign a local band less than a year old. The Givers describe themselves as "Afro-beat, dancy pants, indie pop love music," and that's pretty accurate, actually. Combining funk, calypso and the poppiest of pop rock, the band creates a lush, layered atmosphere, filled with choruses that stick in your head for days. Tif Lamson's voice is sweet and smoky, and like the rest of the band, she sounds at once youthful and older than her years, producing music much tighter and practiced than you'd ever expect from their age.

The only complaint I have is how short the CD is, but here, quality is given precedence over quantity. Every song feels perfected without being polished into lifelessness, no doubt from playing constantly since the band's inception. Still, I could do without the remix of "Up Up Up," and the EP doesn't do their show justice. Live, they're a fantastic, colorful, sweaty explosion. They're the only band I've seen lately that looks like it's having the time of its life the whole show. Look for the Givers' full-length album this summer.--OffBeat Magazine, April 2010 issue

This music is a ton of fun! I hope they make more soon. This group is great to see live, also. I listen to this a lot. Groups that Givers remind me of include Vampire Weekend, Talking Heads, Rusted Root, maybe Animal Collective a little bit. This music has a lot of energy and the performers have a lot of fun and are super talented.
