On July 19th, just before their show at Lambert’s in Austin, TX, California outfit Family of the Year stopped by our Austin office to play a few (amazing) tunes and answer a few questions.

Though relatively new to the scene (the band formed in 2009) they’ve already accomplished quite a bit in their career, including touring with amazing bands such as Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Grouplove, Milo Greene, Belle Brigade, Good Old War and more. Family of the Year’s latest albumĀ Loma Vista, full of textured harmonies and dynamic instrumentation, is already a favorite among our Music Designers. Watch our interview to learn more about the band’s inspiration, influences, and the tight quarters they lived in during recording:
