The new songs on the YOUNG PRISMS 7-inch for Intercoastal Artists could have been exhumed from Creation Records chilly grave. The A Side, ‘Apartment Song (prequel,)’ sounds like an amalgam of Creation’s noisier output. Bobby Gillespie drumming with Slowdive guitar but with almost a High Rise-type feel. That is until the bass kicks in, borrowing something from Peter Hook circa, well, it doesn’t matter, it sounds like Peter Hook on bass. The B side, ‘Apartment Song (sequel,)’ sounds more contemporary. Contemporary in its devotion to the 1970s-from krautrock to Fripp & Eno’s 1970s ambient suites No Pussyfooting and Evening Star. It sounds like a nude version of My Bloody Valentine’s opus (my opinion) “Glider”. Good luck picking a favorite side on this little record.
