YOUNG WIDOWS "SETTLE DOWN CITY" CD (JT1119) ALBUM INFO AND MP3
The three members of [B]YOUNG WIDOWS[/B] emerged from the dissolution of [B]BREATHER RESIST[/B] with a new vision steeped in dark, brooding grooves and moody post-punk. From the reverb-drenched inspiration of Regulator Watts/Hoover to the bass and drums lock-groove perfected by Shellac and the Jesus Lizard, [B]YOUNG WIDOWS[/B] gladly wears influences on its sleeve. The signature inventive guitar work of vocalist/guitarist Evan Patterson (Black Cross, The National Acrobat) is at its peak here, while the rhythm section of Nick Thieneman (also of Black Cross) and Geoff Paton lays down syrup-thick grooves, recalling Pacific Northwest heavyweights (think Melvins, Karp, even Nirvana), and British post-punk, ala Gang Of Four. [I]Settle Down City[/I] (JT1119), their Jade Tree debut, contains 11 songs of hypnotic, heavy, noise-rock anthems and will be released September 12, 2006.
[B]YOUNG WIDOWS[/B] will be making their live debut this Saturday, May 27th, at the Keswick Democratic Club in their hometown of Louisville, KY as part of the [URL]http://www.lastsaturday.net|Last Saturday |EXTERNAL[/URL] show series. Label mates [B]PAINT IT BLACK[/B] will also be appearing, alongside noise-punks Pissed Jeans and locals Squarewell. The band will be hitting the road in July and August with Louisville brethren Coliseum and the two bands will be releasing a split 7” on their own Auxiliary Records label to coincide with the tour.
