Deep in the distance archives of history when I was in college, a had a friend named Sam Nardella whom I vibed with on music. Fast forward the tape and Sam is now in a successful, touring band from Los Angeles called Y LUV. Last fall, I remember hearing from Sam that Y LUV had played Voodoo Fest in New Orleans. What a mind fuck that was... Further down the road, Y LUV is now performing at Bonnaroo and Glastonbury this summer.
Anyhow, backstories aside, the bottom line is that Y LUV is crafting worthwhile jams. and makin' moves. You can stream their full new "Take the Ride" EP below and download it here. Additionally, check out the video for "All I Wanna Do". Best of luck to the Y LUV dudes in Tennessee this weekend.
