Sometimes It’s Better to See GIVERS Than ReceiversNovember 5th, 2010
The Louisiana-based GIVERS—Kirby Campbell (drums, samples, vocals), Taylor Guarisco (guitar, vocals), William Henderson (keys, samples, vocals), Tif Lamson (vocals, ukulele, percussion) and Josh Leblanc (bass)—formed just last year and released a self-titled debut filled with an eclectic, rich sound. Guarisco says, “I know a large influence on most of us is African music, but that’s just one. We’re all into experimental music and electronic music as well. Being from Louisiana, we’re into roots music. So just a blend of all of that kind of represents a big portion of the flavor that we end up creating [as a band].” Find out for yourself when GIVERS (above, doing “Up Up Up” at this year’s SXSW) play Mercury Lounge tomorrow.
