Friday Tunes: Young Widows ‘Old Wounds’

January 10, 2014

Formed from the ashes of legendary mathcore outfit Breather Resist, Louisville, Kentucky’s Young Widows surfaced in 2006 as an altogether different beast. Gone was the frenetic, calculated riffing of old and in its place a grittier, almost blues-y tone took over that was heavily indebted to bands like The Jesus Lizard and Melvins. The 2008 ‘Old Wounds’ LP is a personal favourite of mine and having seen them live on this particular album’s tour I’ll always remember how well they pulled off this set of songs with a simple 3-piece setup.
