Product Description

In the Autumn of 2018 I was driving to work and had the CD of ‘The Sound Of Young America’ by The Voices playing on the car stereo. Capturing elements of Spacemen 3 and MBV while creating  their own distinctive sound,  I’ve loved this album ever since it was released back in 2007.  I suddenly realised that this amazing album had never been made available on vinyl. And then I remembered that I ran my own record label. Not sure why it took me so long to put 2 and 2 together but I contacted the band immediately and the wheels were quickly put into motion. As it happens, the band were in the process of putting out a new album via their Bandcamp page and also remastering their earlier work so the timing could not have been better. The artwork and audio have been given a bit of a make over and a definitive version of this great and often over-looked album has now been given the Drone Rock Records treatment.

‘During their four year life span they released the lauded 2007 LP ‘The Sound Of Young America’ via My Kung Fu, including the title track, a blistering wall of sound with washed out vocals.’

  1. The Sound Of Young America The Voices 5:18

The Voices

Formed in 2003 The Voices consist of CS Munday, CD Pompa and C Pompa. A demo created one beautiful summer started a journey of noise, repetition and dreams. They went on to release four albums, several BBC radio sessions and appeared on shoegaze and noise compilations from record companies from across the globe.

The Voices split up in 2009.

In 2017, the band reformed and released their last album ‘Dark Waters’ in 2018. They are currently in the studio working on new material and a return to playing live.

‘The Sound of Young America’ was originally released in 2007 and was the band’s second album. Following on from the self titled first release, the band opted for a heavier, more hypnotic approach to their songwriting. The album was originally released as a gatefold CD and recorded at home on a 16 track Tascam with the band as producers.

In May 2019 ‘The Sound Of Young America’ is to be released on vinyl for the first time by Drone Rock Records.

CS Munday – guitar/vox
