Youngblood orders always seem to take forever to arrive. When I pre-ordered these at the end of May, I figured that I'd be lucky if they arrived before 2014. Sean Youngblood is a solid dude, he's just got other responsibilities to keep up with, so it just takes him some extra time to get stuff out the door. I know this, and I've never sweated the wait. When I'd received an email from him in June, letting me know that the records were shipping, I was shocked. Only a month wait? Damn. From the time they landed in my mailbox, it took me longer than that to get this post up on the blog.
100 pressed on a great looking pink vinyl.
True Head don't sound like anything else from Youngblood...okay, maybe that Give 7 inch is an exception...but somehow, they seem to be a perfect fit with the label. I love bands like Soul Side and Ignition, and True Head certainly draw their inspiration from those early 90's DC bands.
150 pressed on clear.
Initially, I wasn't really digging this record very much. I loved the band's DC inspiration, but overall their interpretation fell a little flat for me. I've grown to appreciate it more with repeated listens, so we'll see if it eventually sinks it's teeth in.
200 pressed on black.
