• younghusband Dissolver (CD, £11.95)

    label: ATP Recordings

    Younghusband first appeared in 2011 and their second LP has been a smoke stack on the road ahead since their 2013 debut 'Dromes'. While that album defined a scene, this one sets them aside. 'Dissolver' takes in a wide sweep of guitar music and focuses it into a precisely individual proposition; a sound unto itself that nonetheless garners comparisons with Elliott Smith, The Shoes and Big Star. Even as they are expertly made, these assured, authoritative songs reveal the band at a tender moment. Hinshelwood's heart was on something of a butcher's hook at the time - a situation as reliably constructive for music as it is bad news for the liver. He doesn't want to dwell on it and it's been expressed as well as it's going to be on standouts 'Better Times' and 'Blonde Bending' - or, for your insomnia album tracks playlist, 'Broken Girls'. They’ve shared stages with Pond, LOOP, Slowdive, Bo Ningen and Toy. Tracks: Waverly Street / Heavy Expectations / She Lies Awake / Broken Girls / Blonde Bending / Orange Flare / Better Times / Only For You / Misguided Light / Dissolver
