Givers, 'In Light' (Glassnote)

6
In Light
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Label: Glassnote

by Jon Young

Giddy is the default mode on the breezy debut by this Lafayette, Louisiana quintet. Everything sparkles -- bubbly beats, luminous guitars and synths, and most of all, the exuberant voices of Taylor Guarisco and Tiffany Lamson (who apparently have unfettered access to happy meds). Accordingly, In Light is best absorbed in small portions, allowing you to savor the seriously catchy melodies and uplifting vibes. Consumed all at once, the songs tend to blur together, producing a bright rush that's just as likely to inspire jitters as ecstasy.
