Happy birthday to Matthew Young, lead singer of the disco-punk band Young Empires. Young Empires are a trio from Canada whose music will make you run to the nearest dance floor to get your groove on. They are currently recording their first album and their songs have gone viral, being included on mixtapes from the likes of Kitsune. The band recently recorded a live session at Daytrotter and I recommend you download the set, which you can do for free. I am looking forward to Young Empires becoming huge stars, so if you consider yourself a taste maker, make sure Young Empires are on your radar. Happy birthday Matthew! I hope Young Empires come back to New York soon. I need my fix of the funk!
