20 GREAT ALBUMS YOU DIDN'T HEAR IN 2006
11. Young Widows – Settle Down City (Jade Tree)
Those waiting for Drive Like Jehu and the Jesus Lizard to reunite need to come to terms with the fact that it's never going to happen. But, if you insist on waiting in vain then be sure to grab a copy of Settle Down City to tide you over. Singer/guitarist Evan Patterson's ashtray of a voice and extremely loud, jagged, feedback drenched guitar slabs reign in plenty of elastic, post hardcore with waves of arty tension like At the Drive-In gone criminally insane. This Louisville combo puts the power back in "power trio."
