 Young Widows, Easy Pain (Temporary Residence Ltd. Records)

Someone kept babbling in my email about this Kentucky-based power-trio, and I kept putting it off because I was sure I’d already reviewed it, but I didn’t, so there you go, voila, let’s talk about these guys, who’ve been around for three albums as of now, though their history goes back even further. YW actually “rose from the ashes” of a mathcore band (ever notice how no non-metal bands ever “rise from the ashes” of anything?) which had a pretty cool name: Breather Resist. Since I generally can’t stand mathcore, I like this stoner-metal stuff better, sort of a cross between White Stripes, St Vitus and Rage Against the Machine, all with a quirky Queens of the Stone Age undertow to it. Pretty crankable if you like that sort of stuff. A-Eric W. Saeger
