7-21-09 playlist

I'm pleased to introduce a fun find this week... Ketchum, Idaho's Young People With Faces. I was looking at the "local" section of my local record store and found a nice digipack with a grainy black & white photo of some teenagers (1 earnest boy and three girls) with their band name spray painted pink behind them. The sticker on the shrink wrap, also 80's pink, states their mission:

“Young People With Faces are four 17 year olds from a tiny Idaho town, entranced by the culture shattering sounds that emanated from such sonic temples as Hollywood's Masque, London's Roxy and Manhattan's CBGBs a full decade before they were born.”

“Ihateyou” is pretty straightforward punk with bassist Matt Mayhem playing a pretty poppy, tame bassline, but guitarist Simone Kastner is shredding like she belongs in a noisy Brooklyn band or the Wavves... rad. Not to overlook the casual cool of singer Sophia Dilley and amped-up drummer Alice Bynum. The producer is listed as Steve Bynum... Alice's dad? Older brother? The one that got these kids into all the 70's punk? Fun.

Steve Bynum is a customer, amd was just in the store. Nice man. Way to open that baby up, Jason!! I found it buried over in rock in the last inventory, so I moved it over to the local, probably over their objections.
