Consisting of brothers Stuart and Philip Moxham (guitar, organ, bass, drum machine) and vocalist Alison Statton, YMG played at muted volumes while Statton sang in a pretty yet coolly detached tone. "Constantly Changing" and the title track from YMG's 1980 debut album, Colossal Youth, epitomize the trio's skeletal songwriting and production. The former features a Batman theme-inspired bassline, tantalizing surf-tinged guitars, and Statton's waif soprano. The latter features a sumptuous organ so rudimentary, it sounds like Booker T in his bassinet. (YMG even dedicated a song to him.) Another pinnacle in this three-disc compilation of YMG's entire output is "Final Day," a lovely post-apocalyptic lullaby. In retrospect, Young Marble Giants was ground zero for quietcore, sadcore, and pop minimalism. This is essential stuff.
