    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: YOUNG FATHERS, DEAF JOE, & EAST INDIA YOUTH



    Young Fathers released some excellent singles during late 2013, which built up expectation for ‘Dead’ their debut album. Does it live up to expectation? Absolutely, and perhaps even more. It’s hard to judge what impact this album will have over the course of 2014, but on artistic merit, it should be significant. Words like raw, honest, and visceral have been used to describe Young Fathers’ brand of Hip Hop, but let’s keep it simply, and use the word brilliant.



    ‘From The Heights Of A Dream’ is album number two from Deaf Joe. The bulk of the album was written during 2010’s ice and snow storms; it captures a sense of isolation and beauty that you don’t get to hear all that often. If you’re quick, you can get one of the 200 limited hardbound book edition.

    ‘Total Strife Forever’ is the sound of someone making music on their own terms. What does this mean? Simply put, East India Youth (aka William Doyle) has made an individual album that is set to rake in the plaudits for the foreseeable future. Laptop hero or future pop star...who cares; right now ‘Total Strife Forever’ sounds just fine!

    BURIED TREASURE - THE HONEYMOON 'DIALOGUE'

    Every town or city has a story of a musician that should have received far greater recognition than they did; it's the classic or perhaps tragic story of music. The Honeymoon were a duo made up of Icelandic singer Thorunn Magnusdottir and UK musician Wayne Murray. 2004's 'Dialogue' is a stunning piece of work. This tranquil, dreamy beauty has been swallowed up by time; a bit for all those who never had the pleasure of hearing it.
