8/10 Mike Staff review, 13 February 2014

The last Richard Youngs record I reviewed only came out last week - a collaborative 7" EP of minimal electronic pop with Andrew Paine. The prolific experimental songster is back already, though, with this limited 'Summer Wanderer' LP where he sings three lengthy a capella tracks.

It's quite a meditative style he's adopting here, with his plainsong spirituals reminding me of Alasdair Roberts more than anybody else. He's certainly got a distinctive voice, and one that's well suited to this type of music, world-weary and with a plangent, unforced clarity. He's a brave lad putting out an entire LP of his unaccompanied voice, but it's really soothing and timeless-sounding.

It's certainly not for everyone, but if you're a fan of Youngs's voice then you're in luck, these plaintive and monastic-sounding passages are full of it.
