YOUNG WIDOWS 'Decayed: Ten Years Of Cities, Wounds, Lightness, And Pain'
Regular price €30,00
Since their inception in 2006, YOUNG WIDOWS have released four studio albums – each pushing their restless drive towards the incomparable a little further. Those albums – 'Settle Down City' (2006), 'Old Wounds' (2008), 'In and Out of Youth and Lightness' (2011), and 'Easy Pain' (2014) – were as bruising as they were brilliant, as menacing as they were mysterious. 'Decayed: Ten Years Of Cities, Wounds, Lightness, And Pain' perfectly charts YOUNG WIDOWS' evolution from inspired post-hardcore trio to peerless entity crafting profound combinations of post-punk, noise rock, heavy psych, and gothic folk. The fifteen tracks in this collection originally appeared on stand-alone singles, b-side, splits with like-minded artists (including Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Pelican, Melt-Banana, and My Disco), and rare compilations. Four of them have never been released until now. Of the many impressive aspects of YOUNG WIDOWS' decade-plus run as a band, perhaps most remarkable is the quality and breadth of music they made that didn't appear on their albums. Every song here is a standout track from the evolving eras of the band, and as with all things YOUNG WIDOWS, 'Decayed' pays respect to the past while planting roots for the future.
