Young Knives - Barbarian

Recommended Posts

A new discovery for me. Not really bass/guitar based music so I'm not sure the mileage it will get here. A mix of Ulver, Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails along with some Reeves and Mortimer style humour. A real departure from anything they've done over a few years old, which is good as I don't really like their old stuff. They are currently giving the album away free along with a track by track video "commentary" and write up.  https://young-knives.com/i-am-barbarian/
Now that I've had enough time to listen to the album properly it's my top 2 of the year (shared with Pure Reason Revolution's Eupnea). Despite getting the album free I bought the CD/live stream from Banquet Records to support the band/local music shops.
Sheep Tick is probably my favourite. The video is absurd in a very British way.

Definitely a departure from their early stuff, which I like, often crops up when I play shuffle on my phone. Almost like they got together with a techno producer and this was the result.
