Very limited 6-track 10" - only 150 copies worldwide. Lord Youth is the songwriting project of Micah Blaichman from Queens, NY.
Recorded in Berlin in the summer of 2014 by producer Anders Christopersen, in a building that once housed a blacksmith's workshop, in sessions that were as methodical as they were experimental. The EP's sound was greatly influenced by the mid-summer purchase of a Chilton Talentmaker, an optical-disk keyboard that was a copyright-infringing counterfeit of Mattel's Optigan Organ. Another inspiration was a large stained-glass window that bathed the studio in reds and greens and blues. Other inspirations were Skip James, the kraut-rock band Can's record Ege Bamyasi, and the writings of William Vollmann.
