NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL VIDEO OF THE DAY: “HELLO LOVE” BY THE YOUNG THINGS

New York quartet the Young Things will be playing the Northside Festival on June 14, celebrating the release of their debut album, Hello Love/Goodbye Sexual (Battle Worldwide, June 4). On the record, Mike, Josh, Neil, and Jon channel the Beatles circa 1966-68, with some Queen and Pink Floyd thrown in for good measure, creating a garage-based kind of NYC Britpop — the LP was produced by Lenny Kaye — on such tracks as “No One Taught You How to Fall in Love Alone,” “All Human Life,” and “Sore Eyes.” On “Hello Love,” they sing, “Hello, love, I’m writing you to tell you how I’ve been / Money’s tight and times are tough across the Brooklyn Bridge.” They’ll be on the Brooklyn side of the (Williamsburg) bridge Friday night at the Grand Victory with the Boxing Lesson, Purple, Spires, and headliners Har Mar Superstar, who make a guest appearance on the Young Thing’s “Goodbye Sexual.” (For a look at Mike playing two acoustic tracks from the record on Jon Chattman’s “A-Sides Sessions” Huffington Post video show, go here and here.)
