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 butchers 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.’
UK Tour : ten dates in August with Jacco Gardner. Solo tour in November. They’ve shared stages with Pond, LOOP, Slowdive, Bo Ningen and Toy
