Young Widows 

Old Wounds (Temporary Residence)

After a stressful holiday season, the best way to unwind is to play an album like this in the car and push the limits of summer tires on icy pavement. Within the catastrophic noise and mayhem of Young Widows' post-punk wailings lies catharsis and redemption. Within everything lies this Louisville, Kentucky trio aspires, and it is impossible to miss the Jesus Lizard, Fugazi and Stooges elements. On songs such as "Mr. No Harm" and "21st Century Invention," the band doesn't do much to hide its idolatry. But nonetheless, Old Wounds is a stunning achievement, and (quite paradoxically) a devastating but intimate listen.
