Happy Release Day Richard Youngs! Stream Amplifying Host All This Week On Spinner

Today marks the release of Richard Youngs’ eleventh Jagjaguwar release Amplifying Host. Over his long career we have gotten to know Youngs’ music intimately, yet he still never ceases to surprise us. As Dusted Magazine puts it Youngs is “one of the few modern songwriters to actively challenge his own preconceptions of his art.”

All this week you can stream Amplifying Host at RIGHT HERE.

Hear what Spin Magazine says evokes “the moonlit tumbleweed vistas of an acid Western.” The Onion calls “Amplifying Host‘s gaunt improvisation and gauzy textures orbit atonality even as they sketch the silhouette of a haunted, dust-blown folk.” And Tiny Mix Tapes in a particularly beautiful and personal review says “Youngs’ music sounds broken here, but as with Jandek’s utterly unique take on rock ‘n’ roll its brokeness creates a sound that is thrillingly expressive in its difficulty.”
