Artist: CULT OF YOUTH
Title: The Devils Coals/Sidestreets
Format: 7"
Label: Blind Prophet
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Blind Prophet Records is proud to present a 7" of all new material from Cult Of Youth. The Devils Coals is a stark and passionate battle cry against the sins of the world and the desire to take the easy way out. Lush, dark, and invigorating, it marks the triumph of the individualist human spirit over the landfill called culture that grows all around us. It is arguably the best thing that Cult Of Youth has put to wax and continues to push things forward into a new territory that owes as much to Code Of Honor as it does to Current 93. The B side, Sidestreets, shows an entirely different side of the band. It is a cover of a song by fellow Brooklyn musician Martial Canterel rearranged and performed entirely without synths of any kind. A dancefloor hit, perhaps, but also a sign of friendship and admiration for ones peers. The Devils Coals is limited to 500 copies (400 black and 100 blue) and comes with a download code." - Blind Prophet.

Artist: CULT OF YOUTH
Title: Cult Of Youth
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Born out of a love for the post-industrial music and culture that had inspired him ever since he had first discovered music as a teenager, Cult of Youth began as a series of home recordings by founder Sean Ragon. Ragons solo Cult of Youth project released a 7-inch and then one full length on then fledgling Dais Records (also responsible for introducing the world to Cold Cave and releasing Genesis P-Orridges pre-Throbbing Gristle recordings for the first time). The early recordings seemed to strike a chord with many people who felt alienated by the cultural irony and lo-fi slacker mentality that was ever present in independent music at the time. Adding three permanent members to the line-up: performance artist/director/painter/occult scholar Micki Pellerano on bass, machinist drummer Glenn Maryanski, and the violin virtuoso/goddess Christiana Key. (Keys brilliant string arrangements were recently featured on new Zola Jesus single “Poor Animal.”)
This is their first album as a proper band, produced by Chris Coady and mixed by Swans producer Kevin McMahon; its an ideal realization of the amazing potential this new full band line-up. It is a neo-folk masterpiece, perhaps the first of its kind from an American band. Although still rooted in the acoustic guitar driven Teutonic chants of the early material, the focus has changed and the scope is broader. Cult of Youth shifts from delicate pagan folk music reminiscent of Paul Giovannis landmark soundtrack to The Wicker Man, to hazy Turkish psychedelic passages, and even to the rugged Americana of traditional country music. This debut is an unapologetic and unabashed search for a spiritual identity in an increasingly homogenized world. It serves as a clear and thorough introduction for all the burgeoning dark punks out there who wanna go a bit deeper but havent yet figured out where to start." - Sacred Bones.
