RICHARD YOUNGS - may CD, Jagjaguwar




“May, recorded at various times in Harpenden, England, is Richard Youngs’ newest solo meditation. His music is magical, but not in the sense that it merely conjures up fantastical imagery or ‘transports the listener to another place’. None of that is really happening. Richard Youngs’ spell lies in the transformative qualities of his music. From so little we get so much. It is minimalism without pretense, songwriting that abhors artifice. It resides in the spiritual nexus between the oft disparate realms of traditional folk and the avant-garde.”
