RICHARD YOUNGS’ Under Stellar Stream Out Today

RICHARD YOUNGS’ Under Stellar Stream is out today on Jagjaguwar. The release is a collection of neodruid hymns and chants for the minutiae of homelife and fatherhood — poetic transcendance through repetition and a focus on the (seemingly) micro. For more than 20 years, the UK’s Richard Youngs has been at the forefront of progressive minimalism, through solo home recording projects; through collaborations with the likes of Simon Wickham-Smith and Makoto Kawabata (of Acid Mothers Temple); and in special live performances playing bass with Jandek. Leaving a very human fingerprint on even the most far-reaching experimentations, Youngs has built a extensive, intriguing catalogue that just begs one to go deep.

Pick up Under Stellar Stream at your local record store or order online HERE.

RICHARD YOUNGS Co-headlines Full of Noises Festival in the UK

In October music fans will have the chance to experience RICHARD YOUNGS’ sonic artwork when he performs as a headliner at the Full of Noises festival among the shipyards of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. The festival, billed as a new international festival of contemporary music and sound art, is about new work, new audiences and new creative partnerships. The festival site in the heart of Barrow’s shipyard offers an ideal setting for site–specific sonic artwork, with the unique layout of the building leading to a blurring of the distinction between workspace and performance space. Youngs headlines on Friday, October 23, but sonic exhibits, art installations and other performances will round out the week. For festival tickets and more information visit the F.O.N. festival site HERE.

New house and techno-inspired RICHARD YOUNGS LP, Like A Neuron, Now Available On Dekorder Label

RICHARD YOUNGS’ house and techno-inspired LP, Like A Neuron, is now available through the Dekorder label, which said of the release: “The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While it’s an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, it’s still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music.”

Order Like A Neuron HERE.
