A couple of weeks ago, I found myself at a show of super-emo local band Rika. I had not seen them play in what felt like forever, and for the first time in many months, during the show, I felt transported by the music, back to the 90′s, it hitting me right in the guts. The music of Norwegian post-rock band Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson has a similar effect on me; their contemplative shoegaze and very long, beautiful, and heavy instrumentals make my heart explode and give me goosebumps. As of yesterday, this lovely band has made the album Past/Future available on bandcamp for (free) download. It’s a collection of demos and unreleased songs, with quite a few gems such as opener Game, Set, Match or the Citroen demo – perfect for the start of the autumn.
