  • richard youngs – may – humito

    out of stock

    First vinyl issue of what might be termed Youngs’ 6th album, recorded in 2001, and originally released on CD by Jagjaguwar. In his constantly spiraling oeuvre, “May” most stylistically resembles Richard’s much-loved album “Sapphie”, being 6 songs of guitar and vocals in his most heartfelt and personal mode. As always with Richard, only the sparest materials are used; the guitar is based on simple, evocative melodic passages and resonances, the lyrics composed of a hallucinatory tapestry of recurring phrases, images and sounds which weave the mind in shifting patterns, and play with the listener’s sense of memory in a profoundly psychedelic and moving way. In the manner of the finest free folk of the modern era, the combination of traditional forms and instruments, avant-garde or free technique, and homemade or lo-fi aesthetics is utterly unintellectual. What we have rather, is human, with instrument and mind, whispering into the dew of the English bloom, in the time-honored manner of Shirley Collins and Martin Carthy, bound only to the sweetness at the heart of the song in a way we dig here at Humito.

    Recorded Christmas 2000, Easter 2001 and last day of May 2001 in Harpenden, England. All songs, performances and recordings by Richard Youngs

    USED copy
    an allez-taeia of the body, earth breath and sweetness, a great sigh beneath the world tree. an attempt this time to say a few things simply, and be gone. about letting go of places that are family, not holding on too tight, the condition of waking up one morning and suddenly finding yourself alive on this great green planet, surrounded by the infinite……

  • dredd foole with mv & ee – blues sermon with congregation

    out of stock

    originally released on cdr in 2004 on heroine celestial agriculture as compendium discs/digital 78s to “kissing the contemporary bliss” (com 17). these were COM 17h3 & COM 17h4

    “beautiful lp issue of these long gone child of microtones releases.
    Humito is quickly becoming a benchmark for gorgeous looking & sounding vinyl and with some pretty sweet future releases lining up definitely a label to keep an eye on. And this their third release is definitely worth checking into.

    now im gonna come out right out and say the first time i saw dredd foole about a decade ago i was pretty taken aback and straight up was “this is the dude yall been raving about?” could not wrap any part of my head around it at all.
    this summer i had the wonderful pleasure to see dredd foole play again and indeed it was beyond a pleasure, straight up floating in blissful peace.
    But interestingly enough folks at the same show were totally taken aback and could not wrap their head around the set at all.
    So yeah there definitely aint no sound samples for this one cause this aint about blasting a short digital clip thru yr tinny computer speakers, this one is for serious heads who are willing to let their overimpacted heads rest and journey deep. dredd foole & mv & ee are the antidote to your digital overload short attention blues,
    all analog recorded & mastered at the maximum arousal farm 2012.”
