Alternative indie pop rock band Never Shout Never (aka Christofer Drew) and his fellow band mates have released more than 100 songs in the relatively short time that they’ve been a band. Last year, Drew delved into his back catalog and picked out a few fan favorites to rerecord for Recycled Youth. A "re-imagining of nine previously released songs but recorded with entirely new styles and instrumentation to make them unique once again,” the album was the first installment of what Drew, whose wispy, high-pitched voice can silence a noisy crowd of punk rockers, has said will be a regular series. Last year, the band delivered its latest studio effort, Black Cat. Drew began writing the songs that appear on the album in 2013. Then, in 2014, working over several months in Los Angeles with producer, Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse), Drew changed his approach to recording the album by welcoming both the band and Herring to write with him and embracing a pre-production process that helped them to shape and mold the songs before recording. The album might be his strongest effort yet. (Jeff Niesel)
