After a little over a year, CULT OF YOUTH come back with their second album for the Sacred Bones Records label. Love Will Prevail offers a challenging combination of both post-punk and folk rock.
CULT OF YOUTH hail from Brooklyn. Their brand new LP just dropped from Sacred Bones on Feb. 22nd, jam-packed with triumphant and anthemic country neo-folk with a driving punk attitude that doesn’t really sound like anything else that’s been in our ears lately.
New York isn’t what it once was. Aging punks may vomit war stories of the squalid existences they suffered through in the pre-Giuliani years but they typically do so a part of haute couture fashion shows or in other more self aware but equally brain dead displays of nostalgic masturbation.
Blind Prophet Records is a label run by Sean Ragon of Cult of Youth. They just released Without Grace or Glory from Denmark punks HAND OF DUST, coming on 7″ vinyl strictly limited to 300 pieces.
Casbah Records is a label based in Valence, France. They recently dropped the LP Rot in the Sun from rowdy French punks OWEN TEMPLE QUARTET, resulting in a wild record that is strangely cohesive.
