'A Youthful Dream' the debut album from Yung is a revelation. Angst makes space for wisdom, youthful exuberance begins channelling road-tested experience, and a blur of basement shows and self-produced bromides becomes something more. Where the previous releases such as 'These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores' found Silkjær masterfully running through buzzsaw riffs, recalling The Replacements and Jay Reatard, 'A Youthful Dream' finds Silkjær reshaping his DIY vocabulary and experimenting with a larger sonic palette, in ways that may make fans do a double take. Richer melodies, pianos, and even trumpets made their way into the recording sessions at Sound Studio in Sweden, where Silkjær, Frederik Nybo Veile (drums) and Tobias Guldborg Tarp (bass) decamped with a handful of guest musicians. Consider the airy, self-referential 'The Child,' a reverie or languid guitar lines punctuated by a horn line; the mid-tempo swagger of 'Uncombed Hair,' suddenly amping up without losing control; or the slow build of 'The Hatch,' its anthemic scope and chugging drums lines showing a new compositional mastery without losing the immediacy and energy of past efforts.  LP - Black Vinyl with Download.LP+ - Limited Clear Coloured Vinyl with Download
