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][URL]http://www.jadetree.com/releases/product/JT1119|Settle Down City[/URL][/I] (JT1119), their Jade Tree debut, contains 11 songs of hypnotic, heavy, noise-rock anthems.
