Richard Youngs - Amaranthine

  • Sale
  • Regular price £5.00

bringing rhythm to the fore, amaranthine is built around layered percussion and youngs' ever present vocals. the asymetrically patterned underlay is scored for drums, household objects and handheld percussion; at points scything fuzz guitar cuts through the sense of ritual with abandon and deep synths bubble up out of nowhere before dissipating into solo shakuhachi. amaranthine is another typically atypical youngsian release in which he ventures deep into uncharted musical space, all the while retaining his essential youngs-ness. "youngs on amaranthine can sound shamanistic or mind-erasing or beyond words, any of the terms we usually apply to immersive and free-flowing music that seems out to bypass the intellect for chills up the spine and tingling of the arm hairs." - jess harvell, pitchfork
