High Again is the long-awaited debut LP by Young Pioneers.
Veterans of the Northwest underground, Young Pioneers formed in Olympia’s nascent punk scene during the early ‘80s. They’ve not lost their gift as masters of the dark art of post-punk pop psychedelia, welding wicked melody into pop hooks. They beat a mean tambourine.
