2012 release. MIE are delighted to be releasing the excellent Amaranthine by prolific UK experimental musician Richard Youngs. Bringing rhythm to the fore, Amaranthine is built around layered percussion and Youngs' ever-present vocals. The asymmetrically patterned underlay is scored for drums, household objects and handheld percussion; at points scything fuzz guitar cuts through the sense of ritual with abandon and deep synths bubble up out of nowhere before dissipating into solo shakuhachi. Amaranthine is another typically atypical Youngsian release in which he ventures deep into uncharted musical space, all the while retaining his essential Youngs-ness.
