Young Heirlooms possess the improbably ability to look back into bygone musical traditions and translate those antiquated ideas and modes of expression into a sound that is as contemporary as an IKEA living room. Kelly Fine and Chris Robinson sing, play mandolin and guitar and provide the timeless songs that anachronistically span the ages, while a murderer’s row of musical friends make a gorgeous racket around them. Young Heirlooms’ 2013 eponymous full-length debut was a master class in everything the band does exquisitely well, and one can only hope that much more songwriting as filled the intervening three-year gap.
YDIIYD: Nickel Creek and The Civil Wars go into couples counseling with Dr. Ralph Stanley and Dr. Neil Young.
