Album Review

Lust For Youth – “Growing Seeds” – [Sacred Bones Records]

incognito   2/13/2013   A Library, CD


Swedish duo Lust For Youth’s 2012 release, “Growing Seeds” is a rather minimal and detached sounding electronic effort. With obvious electro and insert-your-own-adjective-wave influences, the album sounds bleak and emotionally unavailable. Although the music is quite good if you are a fan of kraftwerk and dark 80s influenced sounds, the album feels a bit monochromatic, perhaps through the use of very similar synths from track to track and distant echoing vocals, although it might be exactly what the artist intended. I particularly enjoyed the instrumental tracks “We Planted a Seed” and “La Rouge,” as well as the poppy “It’s You.”
