Mixtape 59 - Youth Avoiders

Here is the 59th installment of the Dreams of Consciousness podcast, featuring an interview with Parisian punk rockers Youth Avoiders.

"Eighties inspired hardcore punk without distortion played as fast as we can." That's how the Paris-based Youth Avoiders describe their sound.

I caught up with the band before their headlining Not A Fest set at Rumah Api. We talked about their origins, their South East Asian tour, and the state of the punk scene in Paris. We also discussed the writing and recording of their latest album Relentless, including how they achieved their distinctive guitar tone.

My thanks to the members of Youth Avoiders for sitting down to speak with me, and to you for listening.
