With Vol. 1, Young Man mastermind Colin Caulfield leaves his dorm room for his first studio album with a full band. The second in a planned three-album cycle, Vol. 1 sports a meatier sound, with Caulfield augmented by more instrumentation and more band members. Opener "Heading" is a warm, hazy trip with a meandering keyboard and soothing bassline. "By and By" ambles with easygoing hums and bright, shimmering reverbed guitars, while "21" pulsates with an intense, swirling piano lead that morphs into the deliberate, aggressive snares and disorienting guitar melodies. Vol. 1 is out May 22nd on Frenchkiss. You can stream Vol. 1 in its entierty below.
