Young American Primitive
"Self-titled" CD (ZoeMagik)
After all the twaddle resulting from jazz-rock, it's perfectly logical to be wary of musical cross-breedings. Considering Young American Primitive combines much-maligned styles of music (namely various sub-categories of techno and ambient music with all its attendant pretensions), such reservations are understandable. If electronic, ambient or trance music aren't especially appealing to your ears, stop reading because Young American Primitive toys with elements of each to create an intriguing album filled with found sounds, tribal percussion and synthesizer washes. On the other hand, if punk periodically becomes boring but you still enjoy listening to uptempo music, you might want to try this.
