What's A Discovery Download? Find Out with Millionyoung

(Pitcured above -- Greg Gillis? Nah bra!  Millionyoung!)

OK. Take a deep breath because you can't think about LOST all the time. We watched. We know you are confused. It will only get worse before it gets better. Let's chat about Millionyoung. Oh shit, old school Myspace link! What?

This band was a "discovery" by way of fellow-blog friend, Pop Tarts Suck Toasted, who named them "band of the week" sometime ago. With a discography composed of digitally released EPs, one of which, Sunndreamm, can be downloaded for free, we were immediately intrigued. We like free because it tastes good, like a milkshake, or fried dumplings. Sunndreamm -- not only was it free, but it was super delicious; best to be described as an amalgamation of summery, feel-good electro-pop, with reverb-ladden vocals and heavy nods to JJ, Passion Pit, Mr. Little Jeans, and Taken By Trees. Yep.

Since our last foray into all things Millionyoung, they recently released what is being called a "Discovery Download" on iTunes; they give you one track on their newest EP, Be So True, for free and the rest is only $3.98. We discovered this, and then downloaded the EP. Call us suckers, but we'll drink your milkshake any day, even if you bring all the boys to the yard.
