Richard Youngs recently released a new electronic 12″ via London-based record label Alter. Titled Rurtain, the a-side features two long-form works. Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club), John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) lend their musical talents to the album’s b-side, each sharing their own remix on Richard’s originals. It’s a limited release – only 300 copies available! Order yours from Alter. Listen to “Rurtain (Shonny Don).”
To celebrate the new release, Alter is hosting a special event at Cafe Oto on October 19 with an exclusive trio performance from Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell and John Clyde-Evans. Details HERE.
“It finds Youngs operating in a mode that’s several leagues from the poppier sounds of his best known work (the likes of Beyond The Valley of Ultrahits). Instead its longform title track, split into two parts – ‘Rurtain (Shonny Don)’ and ‘Rurtain (Keyomarno)’, finds him collaging percussion, wisps of his own voice and stately organ figures into disorienting and immersive patchwork quilt electronica.” – The Quietus
