Multiinstrumentalist Cult Of Youth frontman Sean Ragon is a home-recording fiend, and he laid down the tracks for the second Cult Of Youth album, Love Will Prevail, in a self-built studio located behind his Bushwick music shop Heaven Street. The music he crafts is rooted in folk, but it’s a sort of expansive folk that brings to mind—more Wicker Man as remade by Factory Records’ earliest acts, less open-mic night. Tonight, Ragon, rounded out by a band, plays at Public Assembly with Pharmakon, Pink Reason, and Zatsuon, and Sound of the City has a pair of tickets to give away. Information on how to win below.
