Young Widows - In and Out of Youth and Lightness (New CD)
Youth and Lightness was produced by the band and Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket) at the Funeral Home in their hometown of Louisville, KY. The musical palette remains fundamentally the same. Singer/guitarist Evan Patterson's cavernous, warped blues riffs weighted by Nick Thieneman's earth-shaking bass and drummer Jeremy McMonigle's sturdy, shifting rhythms. But the augmented instrumentation and choral vocals lifts them to incredible new heights. In and Out of Youth and Lightness is an unquestionable breakthrough for the band and an inspiring force in the canon of heavy music.
