Hear(t) It: The Young Veins

Remember that band Panic! At the Disco? The Fall Out Boy proteges, who Wrote Songs With Really Long Titles That Made No Sense? Well, they're still around, but two of the members, singer Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker, left the band last summer, moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, and formed a new group called The Young Veins. Ross and Walker combined their songwriting talents to create Take a Vacation!, an album full of 11 tracks of concise, sunshiny gems, that harken back to the golden years of 60s pop when bands like The Kinks, Zombies and Byrds played over the AM radio. Take a Vacation! is an album about girls and love, being young and growing up -- lyrical escapes that tell of rebellion and musical vignettes about coming of age.
