Title: Rurtain
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"At this point in time Richard Youngs should need no introduction. Through his vast discography (spanning over 20 years), he has created a fascinating body of work which has found a home on labels such as Forced Exposure, VHF, Jagjaguar and his own No Fans imprint. Like all great artists, Richards work is hard to pin down and continues to evolve, mutate, and blossom into new forms, while at the same time bearing a unique characteristic that lets you know it could be by no-one else. Split into two parts, Rurtain is a new electronic piece which picks up from where the Core to the Brave LP on Root Strata left off, but taking a more abstract road into something more skeletal and strange. In the first part, broken beats cluster around minimal hits of percussion and wordless vocals that sound like theyre trapped in a vacuum, evoking a slightly unsettling atmosphere. Things become a little more celebratory in the second part with the addition of some very erratic organ playing, giving an ecstatic and almost "free-jazz" feel to the piece. The B-side features three very different interpretations of Richards originals by Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club), John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never). Neils version expands the organ of the second piece into a huge kaleidoscopic drone, while John hones in on the woodblock and percussion to make something more metallic and abrupt. Finally, Daniel Lopatin closes the LP grandly by adding violent stabs of digital synth and melancholic guitar-playing to Richards voice, almost creating a kind of futuristic ballad. Five tracks of unclassifiable electronics, limited to 300 copies. Recorded by Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell, John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin in Glasgow, Yorkshire and New York, 2011 - 2012. Mastered by John Hannon at No Recording Studio and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering." - Alter.

Title: South Voyager
Format: LP
Label: Atonal Industries
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Any journalist will happily jump on the opportunity of utilizing hyperbole. And truly, Richard Youngs is a genius. His work is seminal and unique. Not only because he has composed brilliant works throughout his extensive career—worthy of being devoured by hungry academic minds—but because his own history, written in minor case and without artifices, has routed the direction of contemporary experimental music in almost anonymous fashion. Perhaps he is not a household name, but, without his contributions, the British experimental music scene would be a wholly different beast. His influential shadow has cast across such luminaries as Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and Kawabata Makoto(Acid Mothers Temple), just two of the musicians who have celebrated his inspired (and inspirational) talent.

Since kicking off his discography in the early nineties in his native Glasgow, Youngs has proven to be a prolific, hyperactive artist within a career that spans over 20 years, including three upcoming releases from September through December, 2013.

A multi-instrumentalist led solely by his own conviction, Richard Youngs has rewritten the history of folk (Sapphie, 2000), released a capella recordings (Summer Wanderer, 2004), flirted with pop music (Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits, 2010) and has written some of the more accurate lessons of experimental reverie (The Naïve Shaman, 2005). Perhaps his natural habitat lies in The South Voyager(Atonal Industries, 2013), consisting of three songs without titles that embody mantras, elevating the spirit and paving a path to a god; a god with the initials R.Y.

The career of Richard Youngs is triangulated by experimentation, improvisation—not only as an aesthetic concept, but also due to the limitation of resources—and a collaborative spirit who has previously worked with such renowned artists as Jandek, Luke Fowler (Turner Prize finalist) and up-and-coming auteurs like the multi-gifted Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells). Above all, Richard Youngs remains capable of defying the impossible. By his hand, the exceedingly difficult becomes surprisingly easy, and vice versa. His pop records are intricately multi-layered and forever fascinating. But even his experimental pieces have given way to catchy melodies that will forever remain engrained in your head. Richard Youngs is, without a doubt, here to stay." - Atonal Industries. Edition of 257.

Title: No Retreat in Comfort
Format: CD
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"These are the last remaining copies of the 300-run CD that RICHARD YOUNGS sold on his US 2013 tour, which saw him travel up and down the East Coast, most memorably playing the support slot at the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, NC, opening for John Cale. In his own words: "No Retreat in Comfort was made on a week-long recording bender when I found myself home alone. I remember the weather was dreadful, and I rarely ventured outside. I borrowed a Moog Source, and the album started off as an hour and a half of synth jams. I then fitted the songs to my favourite jams. Having done the recording, it lay dormant for over a year when I remixed it for the tour-only CD. Influences? I dont think it sounds anything like it, but I have a memory of having heard the bonus disc of the McCartney II re-release at about this time and rather enjoying it. I also recall having a Gaelic Proverb book out of the library." -Ba Da Bing.

Title: Summer Through My Mind
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"RICHARD YOUNGS presents his debut recording for Ba Da Bing Records, and the label is looking forward to a long relationship. For Summer Through My Mind, Youngs pushes himself into a challenging new sphere yet again. A renowned musician with over 40 albums to his name, he goes somewhere he never has before-to the heart of American music. Summer Through My Mind is a country music album, warped through Youngss ambidextral mind. A warning: its not like any country album one has heard before. There are familiar elements scattered about-slide-guitar, heartfelt vocals, dark lyricism-but these pieces exist like alienated rocks from a planetary explosion of long ago. The discomfited guitar lines create patchy connections, and Youngss unmistakable singing seals things right up. The album draws together a story Youngs wrote as a child, involving bad people and dark spirits ("Story of Jhon" which has a vocal contribution from SIMON JOYNER), with some lyrics written by his own six-year-old son. In a rare chance to see him perform outside of Europe, Youngs will be playing select US dates in 2013, including the Hopscotch Festival in Durham, NC, and at the ISSUE Project Room in New York." -Ba Da Bing.

Title: Like A Neuron
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Richard Youngs is a prolific British musician (located in Glasgow) with an extremely diverse output. Dusted Magazine once wrote he is "defying strict genre classifications since the early nineties, swapping labels, styles, partners, motifs, and recording techniques as the desire has struck him". So his new album for Dekorder might not be a surprise to anyone following his career. Still, a self-proclaimed all-electronic "ecstatic House record" comes somewhat unexpected. With a line of distinctive synthesizers often used for Techno/House Music Youngs recreates the energy, euphoria and frenzy of these styles without ever trying to recreate the music note by note. The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While its an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, its still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music. In the past, Youngs has released several albums on a dozen labels such as VHF, Jagjaguwar, Table Of The Elements, Gipsy Sphinx, Majora, Chocolate Monk, Celebrate Psi Phenomena, Fusetron and his own No Fans outlet. He has collaborated with Neil Campbell (aka Astral Social Club), Matthew Bower, Simon Wickham-Smith and many others and was a member of the A-Band and has performed live and in the studio with Sunroof! And Skullflower. Additionally, Youngs played bass for Jandek, appearing on three of his live records/DVDs. Limited edition of 500 copies!" - Dekorder.

Title: Calmont Breakdown
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"New solo album by the highly prolific yet always captivating Richard Youngs, whose music can waver healthily between new forms of singer-songwriter material, lo-fi drones, and all manner of avant-garde forms/non-forms. Here, his music sways towards the difficult and embraces organ drones and swells, frazzled electronics, a voice that is at once unnerving and unnerved, and more besides. Anybody expecting a comfortable listen should be prepared. This is challenging music at its best; something Richard Youngs has been adept at since the very beginning. Limited to 300 digipaks." - Forced Exposure.

Title: Primary Concrete Attack
Format: CD
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Another solo album by the highly-prolific yet always captivating Richard Youngs, whose music can waver healthily between new forms of singer-songwriter material, lo-fi drones and all manner of avant-garde forms/non-forms. On this album, Primary Concrete Attack, he utilizes a borrowed spring reverb generator from his friend, Luke Fowler, to rise to the challenge Richo at FD set him of creating a dub record. While not liking reggae or dub himself, Richard Youngs professes a huge passion for tape echo and spring reverb, plus loves a hearty and perhaps provocative challenge. The eight tracks that make up Primary Concrete Attack, as perhaps expected, bear little in common with a dub record and fall far closer to the idiosyncratic worlds Richard Youngs generally appears to feel happiest in. Combining electronic splurge with all manner of loops and various sound sources, this album focuses very much on their effects and how to play around with them as much as the original sounds." - Fourth Dimension.

"The Old Angel, Nottingham, 1990. It was the A-Bands third live show and we were calling ourselves Advent for the evening in honour of a local record shop who - judging by their filing system - thought they were stocking an album entitled Richard Youngs by Advent rather than Advent by Richard Youngs. For reasons that escape me now, Id hoarded 171 used train tickets. It felt like a cool idea to read them out. So I did. Not in the privacy of my own home, but to an audience. They seemed to enjoy it. As soon as Id finished, the A-Band struck up and a good time was had by all." - Richard Youngs. Artwork by Madeleine Hynes. Limited edition of 330 Copies. One Side 10" w/ Laser-Etched B-Side.

Country: Belgium
Price: $21.00
"An acapella record, written, sung and recorded by Richard Youngs in Scotland, September 2004. First only available from Richard as a gift for friends, the album was later released on his No Fans imprint in a micro edition of a couple dozens of cdrs. Now, three years after being recorded, this stunning album sees the light of day on thick, heavyweight vinyl. Think of the ambiance Richard evokes consistently throughout his solo output. Cut off the strings, the drones and all other skillfully arranged overweight and trickle that feeling down to its core essence. The name of Richards gift is Summer Wanderer, its beauty timeless. One-time limited edition of 525 copies pressed on heavy 180g vinyl, housed in thick handnumbered paste-on sleeves." -Gipsy Sphinx. A few more copies of this 2007 release.

Title: Inside the Future
Format: CD
Label: Glass Redux
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Richard Youngs is a British musician with a prolific and diverse output, including many collaborations. Based in Glasgow since the early 1990s, his extensive back catalog of solo and collaborative work formally begins with Advent, first issued in 1990. He plays many instruments, most commonly choosing the guitar, but he has been known to use a wide variety of other instruments including the shakuhachi, accordion, theremin, dulcimer, a home-made synthesizer (common on early recordings), and even a highway bridge -- not to mention an a cappella album. For many years, live performances were very occasional and almost always in Glasgow; he has stated publicly that he finds live performance "incredibly nerve-racking: stomach cramps, tension headaches..." However, in the 2010s, he has begun to perform more regularly (including a tour of New Zealand in 2010 and a UK tour in support of Damon and Naomi in 2011), and many of these shows have been predominantly vocal. Inside the Future is a collection of ten short acoustic songs heavy on overdubbed voice and the textures of acoustic and classical guitars. Experimental, yet firmly rooted in traditional song form, it is both heartfelt and determined by chance, improvised and carefully structured." - Glass Redux.

Title: The Rest Is Scenery
Format: CD
Label: Glass Redux
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"For the uninitiated Richard Youngs is a classically trained pianist and guitarist, but musically he grew up in the shadow cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the independent DIY ethic is at his core. He is a solo artist who also works with a diverse range of artists. He has collaborated with Scottish filmmaker Luke Fowler, Arts Foundation of New Zealand Laureate Award winner Alastair Galbraith, Portuguese organist David Maranha, and Japanese guitarist Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple) among others. Since 1985, he has performed irregularly with Neil Campbell (A Band, Astral Social Club, Vibracathedral Orchestra). He was the bassist for Jandeks inaugural live performance at Instal in 2005, and plays as a duo with Damon Krukowski (Galaxie 500, Magic Hour). He has performed floor spots at Hertfordshire folk clubs, and worked with members of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He has recorded a modern pop album with Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits in 2009, and composed a score titled Past Fragments Of Distant Confrontation for the BBC SSO in 2014. He was commissioned to write music for the art film The Poor Stockinger, the Luddite Cropper and the Deluded Followers of Joanna Southcott (2012), and his music has appeared in the 2013 feature film Drinking Buddies. He is the drum machinist of The Flexibles, singer of Amor, among many other things. Whether youre a long-time admirer of Youngs work, or discovering him for the first time, there is much to enjoy about The Rest Is Scenery - a perfect introduction to one of Britains great outsider artists." - Glass Redux.

Title: Varispeed Etudes
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
“140-gram LP in heavyweight UV-coated sleeve. Limited edition of 300. Varispeed Etudes was conceived by revered, quixotic, Glasgow-based avant-garde populist Richard Youngs very much as an analog "record of two halves" in the spirit of David Bowies Low (1977) and Heaven 17s Penthouse and Pavement (1981). Side A showcases Youngss bent for electronic experimentation and those inimitable, hauntingly reedy, standard English vocal tones that have placed him squarely alongside a peer group of the UKs vocalizing weirdos that includes Robert Wyatt, Ivor Cutler, and Charles Hayward. Side B strips away the vocals and replaces the electronics with a series of shorter, dissonant, slow-moving, acoustic clatterbang soundscapes. The whole thing is "held together by the joy of varispeed pitch control -- major delight of reel-to-reel recording" and its as rich, conceptually oblique, throwaway, but important as anything in Youngss catalog." - Golden Lab.

Title: Advent
Format: CD
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Jagjaguwar is excited to reissue Richard Youngs Advent , Youngs very first record originally released in 1990 in the vinyl format on Youngs own No Fans label. Only 300 LPs were released initially. It was then later released on the Table Of The Elements label and quickly went out of print. It became a true underground success story, a critical darling, with Alan Licht, for example, putting it on his minimal top ten list in the publication Halana. Simply put, it is an essential work in the body of work of one of the most important modern day progressive minimalists. Includes a new essay by Richard Youngs. A three-part composition for piano, voice, and ultra-nasty oboe and electric guitar, Advent indicated signs of life in a genre long dormant in the 80s experimental scene. It continues the tradition from [Terry Rileys] Reed Streams on down with gusto. --Alan Lichts Minimal Top Ten List, Halana.

Title: Autumn Response
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A spartan folk-pop record filled with tinder-box intimacies, composed of some of the shortest songs ever recorded by Richard Youngs. The simplest form of trickery comes from Richard Youngs restrained use of an acoustic guitar, bringing it back to Youngs basics. Twenty-six seconds into I Need The Light, the first track off the album, the listener is confronted with the pivotal element of the record, the drawing line between the hardcore Youngs purists and fairweather fans: the track, like others on the record, features Youngs double-tracked voice splitting in two -- as one overlaid performance veers away from the other. This gesture warrants such a title King of the Progressive Minimalists -- which is often used beside his name by critics -- as the confident inclusion of such an effect grants it legitimacy. Youngs voices slipping away from one another is on par with other intense representations of singularity such as Donald Judd and Malevichs Suprematicist Composition: White on White. Pop is a gesture, a stance, a pose. Autumn Response is a singer-songwriter album, as Youngs fingers slip over the steel strings with little feet and whispery toes, his gently prophetic songs evoke Roger Waters and the folk phase play is sure to appeal to fans of Animal Collectives Sung Tongs." - Jagjaguwar. 2007 release.

Title: Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Make a proper pop album." Thus was the simple dare handed to Richard Youngs from his friend Andrew "Paz" Paine during their weekly Sunday meet-up. Ever the modest master, Youngs said in accepting this friendly challenge that he merely endeavored to capture the "beats and hooks" of contemporary pop. We present the results here as Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits. Among bright, hypnotic loops, Youngs voice finds its inner Bowie. But let it be known: this collection of house-inspired gems displays much more than a capacity for pop emulation. Its a confirmation of Youngs craft and prowess, no matter the terrain. With enviable grace, experimental minimalist Youngs sets his sights on the pop world and claims it as his own. Youngs heretofore unknown love of Pet Shop Boys and the Madchester sound is reimagined via his unique avant sensibility and atmospheric wand strokes. Originally released in 2009 as a very-limited CD-R on Paines Sonic Oyster label, Jagjaguwar is honored to present Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits, remastered and on vinyl for the first time." -Jagjaguwar

Title: River Through Howling Sky
Format: CD
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"If the musical real number line is infinitely dense, then the most recent work of Richard Youngs endeavors to fill in all of the holes on it. River Through Howling Sky is Youngs latest full-length. It returns to the more meditative and drone-y side of his songcraft (circa Sapphie (1998) and Making Paper (2001)), although this is no true devolution: all of his recordings to date have some measure of these qualities. So what is it that sets River Through Howling Sky apart from its predecessors? It is the density on the recording, both intra-spatial and otherworldly. The howling guitar that points unerringly to some imagined horizon line. Throughout, Youngs is the calm and steady wolf, chanting odes to infinity. Expose the ancient Brotherhood of Pythagoras to River Through Howling Sky , and you would find knowing nods, pursed lips, and secret incantations in caves. An unwitting acceptance that not everything is rational or conceptually circumnavigable. Our western tonal system relies on ratios, i.e. strings whacked at particular intervals. Youngs howling guitar and circular chants -- with the help of a spartan amount of percussion and electronics -- may just encompass all the possible ratios and, mystically, more." - Jagjaguwar.

"MIE are delighted to be releasing the excellent Amaranthine on vinyl on the 16th January 2012. Richard is one of our favourite artists on the UK experimental scene and to release this new, singular work by the man himself is very exciting for us. Bringing rhythm to the fore, Amaranthine is built around layered percussion and Youngs ever present vocals. The asymetrically patterned underlay is scored for drums, household objects and handheld percussion; at points scything fuzz guitar cuts through the sense of ritual with abandon and deep synths bubble up out of nowhere before dissipating into solo shakuhachi. Amaranthine is another typically atypical Youngsian release in which he ventures deep into uncharted musical space, all the while retaining his essential Youngs-ness."- MIE.

"With scores of releases both solo & in collaboration that stretches back for more than 20 years, Richard Youngs perhaps needs the least amount of introduction of any of the artists Root Strata has worked with. Were extremely excited to help Richard add another singular entry into his discography. Core to the Brave hits with a shock and never lets up. Composed of what appears to be blown out bass & spastic drum rhythms, these tracks cascade into shimmering loops of distortion, their weight reaching a critical mass that often feels likes its on the verge of ecstatic collapse. Everything is elevated further in & up by that one and only voice, floating over top like a lush wind come down from the mountains." -Root Strata.

Title: Festival
Format: CD
Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For this recording, Scotsman Richard Youngs brings a mixture of emotive balladry and avant-garde sound collage to the fore. Guitar feedback and distorted synthesizer drones introduce the album, suggesting it may be tough going, especially given that their is a high-pitch tone that could shatter windows cutting through the mix. The largely instrumental album switches down a gear from the courageous experiments that see clock chimes, Casios, and electric guitars interweaved, and the drones give way to the lilting ballad "Sea Is Madness" -- which has a heartbreaking refrain that resonates with the same desperation as Robert Wyatt performing "At Last I Am Free." This closing track could easily bring one to tears if it werent so distractingly intricate with its minimalist phasing effects. Wondering if Youngs could top this monumental achievement, he subsequently explored this reduced song style further on the album Saphie and floored his fans with his ability to write heart-wrenching ballads as well as being a super-sonic noise architect. Festival is certainly a standout in his expansive catalog. Coming as it does on Table of the Elements, one could only expect a genre-defying exploration." - Sylvie Harrison, All Music Guide

"No Fans Compendium is a deluxe, limited-edition seven-disc set of Richard Youngss recordings for his long-running private No Fans label. Five CDs are the artists personal selection from his No Fans releases, all of which were issued in tiny editions (20-50 copies) and only available for sale at his rare shows or at Glasgows now-defunct Volcanic Tongue shop. In addition, Youngs has included two full discs of material previously unavailable in any form: a recording from 1989 predating his earliest widely known work, and a new recording from late 2014. Unbeatable as a survey of Youngss career, everything here is of equal quality to his over-the-counter releases. In keeping with his penchant for unpredictable stylistic mashups and reinventions, there are folky laments, achingly beautiful songs, tape collage, rude prog noise, minimalist experiments, multi-tracked vocals, etc. Each disc is housed in an individual card folio with artwork repurposed from the original releases." - VHF.
