Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson biography
Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson is a Norwegian post-rock band, formed by journalism students in Bod¸ University College in 2003. The band is now located in Oslo. Their first demo, recorded in early 2004, consisted of everything from pop, via country and punk, to long and dreamy post-rock tunes. They decided they liked the latter genre, represented by the song A List Not To Be Read At Your Wedding, the best, and thus started making more songs similar to that one.
During the following year they recorded a series of songs in their school's bomb shelter, six of which ended up on their début album, "Unnoticeable In A Tiny Town, Invisible In The City", released on their own newly started label, How is Annie Records, on May 21st 2005. Album's music is dreamy atmospheric soft and melodic Nordic post-rock.

Their new (second) self-titled album was released on the 1st of March 2010 on How Is Annie Records as well.

Review by The Truth

— First review of this album —
5 stars 4 songs, a rather short little EP but it's still one the best examples of good post-rock and also one of the best releases of the year. How you might ask? It's simple, this is downright great melodic and emotional post-rock.

The great thing about Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson is their somewhat unorthodox approach to post-rock. They have a sound that is deeply infected by the emo and post-hardcore music scenes but is still clearly post-rock. In this way, they create something that is interesting to listen to, emotional, catchy and epic all at once.

Their self-titled record was a good example of that sound and that album was a masterpiece, but here YPoFH's sound is a little more evolved and a little more interesting. The addition of horns and female background vocals immediately had a profound effect on the music particularly the opening track "All I Remember is Punk Rock" which is literally one of my favorite songs of the year. Also worth noting is the heartstring plucking orchestration in the background of songs like But Now You Know that sounds like Sigur Ros at their most emotional. Their sound has grown full as a result of the additional factors and this EP benefits greatly from it.

Each song maintains that spark that the opener has and you've got yourself a beautiful little EP, one that I listened to constantly this year and one that could be the best post-rock this year.

If you haven't checked out Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson yet, shame on you. You need to listen to them and what better way to start than this short and beautiful little EP?

Review by DisgruntledPorcupine

2 stars I've been dabbling into post-rock a little bit more lately and I came across this band. I've been a fan of post-rock for a while but just now decided to venture into some of the more obscure stuff. My initial thoughts on these guys: interesting name, and their songs have interesting titles really. They gave me a chuckle in a few places, so I thought I'd try out this album here. I was quite disappointed.

Now this album is not completely bad, it does have some decent, relaxing music like all post- rock bands. But this album does fail pretty miserably at being distinguishable from other post- rock. If you've been exploring post-rock for some time, this album really doesn't offer anything new and it is quite disappointing I find. It has some enjoyable moments, but at other times borders on being just plain banal. I felt like I've heard this millions of times just on my first listen.

However, if you're just starting in post-rock, I'll admit this could be a good first look at the genre. It gives you the feel of what the genres all about. However if you've already heard a fair amount of post-rock, this album is just more of the same of what you'd heard. So really, it's hard to go beyond all this. This album is really what the 2 star rating was made for.

4 stars (Review requested by Horizons)

YPOFH is Post rock band from Norway, the only Post rock band from this country that I know of besides Ulver.

I had some pretty high hopes going into this album, but unfortunately, I am kind of let down overall. It never reaches out and makes you take notice, it stays firmly within the realm of most all other Post rock bands without doing anything new.

That is not why I do not really care for this album though. First thing is the vocals. They tend to vary in how good they are throughout the album. Some songs, like He Can't Be Dead, I got His Autograph, have great vocals, and overall it is a really good song, and my favorite off this album. Other times there are one too many moments in songs where the singing sounds almost terrible, like towards the end of Let's Rent Bikes From 1982. Another problem I find is the use of some found sound clips. There is an art to using sound clips, and some bands, like Gybe, know how to use them to their full extent and create a masterpiece. Other bands do not seem to be able to incorporate them into the music in a way that it feels unobtrusive, and the one that sticks out the most for me is The League Will Never Let The Albino Kid Win, which is my least favorite out of all the songs here mainly because of the bad use of sound clips, and it has got some pretty bad vocals on top of that.

Now, this is not to say that this is a bad album, no no, it has many great points in it too, one of the best plusses is the good use of what I think is a violin or some similar sounding instrument. There are multiple times during the album where, there is a nice lull moment and the violin comes moaning and groaning in its soft way. The songs are also (with the exception of some) very good, with a abundance of what makes me love Post rock/metal so much, and that is the ambience. There are some really wonderful moments here, the best song of the album for me being the mostly instrumental song, I Think E.T. Is Involved In My Family. It has the violin making its despairing and sadning noise, while some laid back drums swirl around, accompanied by some equally despairing guitar, before occasionally gaining some punch, and going into a almost metal like riff, with pounding drums, yet still sounding distinctly post rock.

A good album with some glaring flaws, but there is enough good for me to round this froma 3 to a 4. Fans of Post rock should give this a try.

4 stars Much more traditional post-rock for their debut.

I love their s/t album to pieces but their debut just really doesn't have the same vibe that the other one does that make me love it. It seems to me like it's more acoustic and doesn't have as much of the Youth Pictures of Florence flavor that their next album has. Each track is exceptional nonetheless, Van Gogh Painted Himself... is an amazing track actually, but it just really isn't anything new in the post-rock repetoire. The other tracks are very reminiscent of Godspeed which is good BUT I would listen to Godspeed if wanted Godspeed.

A List Not To Be Read At A Wedding is a big highlight, sort of has a preview taste for the next album and if you're looking for the GY!BE flavor try out Yet We Continue To Build There, The Structure whcih is great as well.

Solid debut, but there were way better things to come.

5 stars Does it sound like a lot of other post rock albums? Yes it does.

Does it have enough difference from those albums to make it great? No it does not.

Is it still good? YES.

I find myself listening to this alot mainly because it's just decent post-rock. Nothing new really, just good old-fashioned (or post-fashioned) music. The atmosphere is the same as most post-rock albums, somber with a fleck of cynicism but something about it just makes me listen to it alot. It could be The band name (awesome name BTW) but I doubt it. Could be the song titles... Naw I've seen better. But what is it then?!

I still don't know. An element I cannot define lurks in this album, and I like it. It draws me to the album like a magnet attracts metal. Some things you just can't explain I guess.

EDIT:

After quite a few more listens (I can't stop listening) I still have not found a flaw in the album. If anything I've found more reasons to love it such as the fact that it sounds much more different than most post-rock contrary to what I thought. I love this album and the undefiniable element is still lurking in it. It deserves 5 stars, really it does.
