Youth and Lightness was produced by the band and Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket) at the Funeral Home in their hometown of Louisville, KY. The musical palette remains fundamentally the same. Singer/guitarist Evan Patterson's cavernous, warped blues riffs weighted by Nick Thieneman's earth-shaking bass and drummer Jeremy McMonigle's sturdy, shifting rhythms. But the augmented instrumentation and choral vocals lifts them to incredible new heights. In and Out of Youth and Lightness is an unquestionable breakthrough for the band and an inspiring force in the canon of heavy music.

There is also an emphasis on space and ghost notes here, with the bass and drums anchoring the songs while the guitar weaves in and out, adding patterns of reverb and delay. I hear a bit of old "post-punk" in this regard...kind of like The Birthday Party or early Echo & the Bunnymen playing Shipping News and Hoover songs. Something has to be said about the vocals as well, which are becoming incredibly strong, giving every song here some added warmth and melody.
All in all, this is undoubtedly Young Widows finest hour in my opinion. Also check out the b-side to the Future Heart 7"...the song Rose Window is incredible.
As for this album, the songs are rather long and droning and it's just not very entertaining. Future Heart is a decent track as is Miss Tambourine Wrists but beyond that there are just a few good moments and the rest is too much art and not enough rock. Also, the production is so-so. It just doesn't sound very lively.
I hate to say it because I am a fan and a music lover in general so I applaud the effort, but it's a swing and a miss in my book.
a viciously linear, bluesy rock ethos. Mean, angry music riding a controlled tempo of bass-heavy
face-punch sprawl with a dramatic, fist-clenched gutter grit. Reminiscent of Sonic Youth, Nick
Cave/Grinderman, Clockcleaner, the Swans, the Poles, the Melvins.
