Young Liars - Vol. 1 - Daydream Believer

Young Liars is a series put out by David Latham - I'll leave the critiques and insights for those more versed in these matters, suffice to say that I liked what I read. Not that it mattered - like nearly every series I jump at, I am looking at you Top10, Young Liars died to soon it's story untold. Not just a loss of a title but a loss of a unigue story. A rare thing at any time.

"Young Liars is a wholly different beast  It’s a VERY personal book.  No one could do this book but me because it’s about my brain and everything I like and feel.  Stray Bullets is like that.  No one else can possibly do it.  It’s why I could do things in Young Liars like put in song recommendations and it wasn’t gratuitous.  It was fun, yes, but it also fit the nature of the book.  It became a very unique place to work inside every months and is the toughest part of letting it go."

- David Lapham, from Mindless Ones Interview 

And if you like a thing and that thing has in it little musical references you'll do the only sensible thing which is to wrangle each track from the ether then string them together into a mixtape they were never intended to become. Mixtape Archaeology.
