Young Jesus: Home

Home Cover Art

Home is the debut full length from Chicago, post-punk band Young Jesus. Right off, people will make a comparison to The National, both for vocalist John Rossiter's range and also stylistically for the band. OK then, there are similarities to The National, but there is also much more depth to Young Jesus than that. This band deserves to be taken on their own identity. The songs on Home are powerful, eloguent and moving. the bands plays every note like they mean it and the album makes a compelling statement for just how good a post-band can really be. Young Jesus are the real deal. Stream and download Home at the link below.
