YouTube du Jour: Neil Young

[youtube][/youtube]Today, Neil Young posted a 38-minute, in-studio video of him performing eight songs from his new Daniel Lanois-produced album, Le Noise. It’s a folk album – just Young and his guitar – but the guitar’s usually electric, distorted and grinding out riffs. Young told the Chicago Tribune‘s Greg Kot, “It’s folk-metal. We got this sound on the guitar that was very exciting to us. There’s the singularity of a folk performance on the guitar, but with a heavy-metal civilization of sound around it.”
