The Bashful Youngens – inflorescent is available @ Apple Music.
by Walter Price
Are you a fan of addictive harmonies, songs about life and the power of love? What about the beauty of the mandoline and the downhome vibes of genuine roots music? Going back just a spell to Champaign, Illinois folk outfit The Bashful Youngens’ brilliant 2017 EP, ‘inflorescent’. You’ll find an album that has it all.
The simplicity and honesty of the six tracks is the power of this hidden gem of a release. No studio wizardry, no flash, no forced sentiments…just folks making music that will resonate with fans of The Texas KGB, The Avett Brothers, and Joey + Rory.
Check out the sweetness of “Hande In Mine” and stream the full EP below. And for something completely different, check out the band’s groove-heavy country-rock cover of Beastie Boys’ 1986 anthem, “Fight For Your Right (to Party!)”, here.
