My Morning Download: “Diversity” by Family of the Year

The Los Angeles based Family Of The Year recently released its new album, Loma Vista on Nettwerk Records. The band formed in 2009 and since then has released several critically acclaimed collections of infectious, poppy songs. The songs on FOTY’s new album are fun filled, melodically rich and (mostly) upbeat songs that often sound like a hybrid of New Pornographers and Fleetwood Mac. Check out “Diversity” here.
