Young Boy consists of long-lost half-brothers Alessandro Baris and Joseph Desler Costa (from L’Altra), who collaborated by sending music between Italy and the U.S. after connecting up with one another. Made in 2013 when Baris and Costa met up in person in Italy, Other Summers bears the traces of an intuitive camaraderie as the brothers thread pensive vocals, refined synths, and patient guitar lines together into delicate dream-pop compositions.

Streaming exclusively on PopMatters, Young Boy’s Other Summers is out now via Saint Marie Records.

Several years after Kurt Cobain died, I went to Sam Goody with a $20 bill and came home with In Utero.

I was 11, maybe 12. “Rape Me” was my favorite. I blasted the track and asked my parents what “rape” meant. They thumbed through the lyric booklet, frowned at the fetuses dotting the cover art, and quickly confiscated the disc to a bedroom closet, where, some weeks later, I happened upon it and reclaimed it in secret. Forbidden art is alluring art, and In Utero has been my favorite Nirvana release ever since. I already owned Nevermind, but In Utero was different—scarier, sharper around the edges. At least in part, that was because of “Rape Me”.
