“I have been craving some good shoegazey noise pop lately. You know, something to remind me why I love My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Cocteau Twins so much. Thankfully, Brooklyn band Youth Castles gave me that. They currently only have three tracks to download on their bandcamp, but they are three amazing tracks. Plus, I’d rather have three great tracks than an album full of mediocre ones.
As far as authenticity goes, these guys are spot on. The reverb, the layered singing, the borderline monotone vocals, the haze of electric fuzz. It’s all there. There is a vibrant energy to this music, it’s electric and you can feel it in your fingertips when you listen to it. It’s the kind of delicious noise that you just want to wrap your head in and forgot all the crap that life brings.
If you couldn’t already tell I’m kinda geeking out over this band. I really hope that they record more stuff in the future, because I’ll be eagerly awaiting it” (cactus-mouth.tumblr.com)
