>Richard Youngs, who recently played alongside Jandek

just got youngs' "river through howling sky". besides
having a pretty janky title, the music is rather
jandek-like. mainly tenor singing, strangely tuned
strumming, wind chimes (in the background of every
song), and a little droning electronic stuff that
sounds like a detuned shortwave radio (probably an
analog synth, but who knows). all in all, really good,
and obviously a perfect choice for The Jandek Band. 

youngs' records are spotty-- for every great one there
are two boring ones. i've listened to 5 or so, and
this is only the second that did anything for me. (i
think the other was called "airs of an ear".) 

worth checking out...
