Your Youth gives away second song from debut EP, lines up pair of CMJ shows

Over the summer, we told you about Your Youth, a Brooklyn trio in love with the sound of catchy ’90s indie rock a la Dinosaur Jr or Built to Spill. The band was giving away a song from its debut EP, “Aloha,” which came out last month. Damned if they’re not giving away a second song, and it’s even more awesome than the first.

“Awake” barrels along on a bouncy guitar riff and sunny melody, and features the intriguing lyric, “Where do we hide all this money now?” Where indeed. The thing sounds barely reined in, which gives it a certain pell-mell charm.

Your Youth plays a pair of shows at CMJ next week in New York: Oct. 20 at Webster Hall and Oct. 22 at the Pop Tarts Suck Toasted showcase at the Cake Shop.
