Young Widows Album Info And MP3

Posted May 29, 2006, 8:13 a.m. in Bands by Bob

The three members of Young Widows emerged from the dissolution of Breather Resist 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, Young Widows 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.

Settle Down City (JT1119), their Jade Tree debut, contains 11 songs of hypnotic, heavy, noise-rock anthems and will be released September 12, 2006.

01. Settle Down City
02. Almost Dead Beat
03. Glad He Ate Her
04. Small Talk
05. Formererer
06. Bruised Knees
07. Mirrorfucker
08. The Charmers
09. New Forest
10. The First Half
11. We Don't Know

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.

Listen to the track "The Charmers" here.
