A half hour of mesmerizing and beautiful fingerstyle guitar from Chicago's Johnny Young. 'II' is as at home in Harry Smith's 'old weird America' as it is in early 60's Takoma Park and, because craft this impeccable and pure-hearted is timeless, it's at home in the mid-summer evening in 2015 that I'm writing this down. Young's playing is rich in Fahey-esque technique that lends itself to meditative listening sessions, a pastoral escape from the waves of vacuous, juddering internet nonsense that wash over so many other hours.
Limited to 100. Packaged with a fold-out mini-poster.
