“Diamond Youth is like the end of that romantic comedy where the lead actress finally realizes the guy she’s truly searching for has been by her side the entire time.”
Claiming Baltimore as their home, members of Diamond Youth are spread across Richmond and Chicago as well, creating an obstacle in terms of actually practicing as a band. However, using tools of the trade such as 3-way iChat, garage band, and voice note files, Diamond Youth has released 2 EP’s in their short tenure since the summer of 2012.
Despite the varying musical tastes of each member in Diamond Youth, they all share a very common back catalogue of bands who have inspired and defined their developing years as budding artists. From Weezer to Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and all the way back to the Beach Boys, the influence these bands has had on Diamond Youth is ever-apparent in the music they write.

It?s rare that we do compilations here at PropertyOfZack, but they tend to be special ones when we do. Today it?s a true pleasure to be taking the wraps off of a special charity-fueled compilation that we?ve been working on for a month or two now called The Big Comp by Big Footprints, Lame-O Records, and POZ.
Big Footprints is the marriage of musical and artistic communities around the world for the betterment of our environment. Donations will be going to The Nature Conservancy - a non-profit organization that works towards reforestation. We will also be participating in TNC?s Adopt An Acre program, where we will be adopting acres of land in The Appalachian Mountains, The Northern Rockies, The Southern Coastal Plains, as well as adopting acres of Coral Reef.
And when we say big, we mean it. For a minimum of $5 you can download 75 fantastic tracks by 75 different bands with all donations (minus Bandcamp fees) going directly to charity.
PropertyOfZack, Big Footprints, and Lame-O Records would like to thank No Sleep Records, Run For Cover Records, Topshelf records, Paper + Plastick Records Records, Pure Noise Records, Asian Man Records, Tiny Engines Records, and of course all the bands and artists involved in this great comp.
What are you waiting for? Check out the artwork and track listing and download the 75 band comp for a minimum of $5 (or more) below by clicking ?Read More.?
