Richard Youngs-Sapphie

With an acoustic guitar and vocals, this mild mannered librarian conjures some really transcendant tones. I can't say that I can list to this all the time but when I'm in the mood for some dark broody stuff, this is a good one to listen to. And the dude's prolific as fuck. Solo, he's done some minimalist compositions, proggy rock, weirdo folk, noise, and basically everything else. And his work with Simon Wickham-Smith, Matthew Bowers, the A Band, and fucking everyone else that plays an instrument is also worth a listen. He even plays with Jandek. How can one man make so much sounds?
