Youngest Son / Press

"...a bona fide diamond in the rough." (All Saints' Day review - 4.5 / 5 stars)

“...though the stories his words weave are tragically poignant, the manner is light-hearted and funny.”

“Youngest Son is actually pretty damn good... a foreboding prepared piano performance that'll give any listener goosebumps. (review of Youngest Son's track on Tallahassee Turns Ten: a Mountain Goats Cover Album)”

“Listening to the EP and reading the accompanying posts is like climbing into Mr. Slagg’s brain, popping quarters into old-timey vignette-movie viewers and watching him wrestle. He wrestles with death. He wrestles with faith. He wrestles to find self-definition in a world that values labels more than the people it applies them to and he does it to a soundtrack that is far from boring. Steve Slagg writes intelligent pop music. He writes songs with geology jokes. He writes musical theater. He writes long, wordy, syllable-bingeing character studies and sparse, pretty ballads. All the while never losing sight of his main goal: tell a good story.”

“that cd you left in my car? the one with worship music and swearing? that was...weird. but the piano was really, really good. and what was that line about the uh...what was it...'he looked 12, she looked 15 and a half'? i loved that! haha!”
