FDLP124 RICHARD YOUNGS Metal River LP. New album by another favourite artist here at FD, whose work can traverse everywhere from avant-folk or otherworldly pop to minimalist electronics or some of the most fervent 'outer sounds' one can dredge from the deepest crevices of their doubtlessly life battle-scarred imagination. On 'Metal River', Richard Youngs offers four songs of deep space beamed curdled electronics not far removed from being akin to the contorted death caterwauls of a cyborg species reaching out in uttermost anguish. It's like prime Edgar Froese getting snagged on Incapacitants before tumbling headlong into a dingy cellar that then has its door slammed shut and locked before one notices the only company is accorded by body parts in dusty and mouldy demijohns. Features three songs on the first side, 'Days of Gravity Indoors', 'Metal River' and 'Rainy Days Static Caravan', plus the side long 'Dual Monody of Accumulated Detritus'. The perfect follow up to the limited edition (and now sold out) 2dicks 7" lathe-cut also featuring Richard Youngs and released by FD in June 2020.
NB: Like many other releases, unfortunately this got held up due to the pandemic and concomitant restrictions. Should have appeared in late 2020, but finally landed in the second week of March 2021. Shipping now!
