Pete Yorn’s American Blues (with Frank Black)

That scruffy troubadour in the Omaha studio with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes/Saddle Creek) isn’t Jim Morrison in the Paris years, nor is it Jesus, we don’t think. That is one Pete Yorn back recording new music. The formidable Frank Black of the Pixies has also been joining him in recent months for “new explorations in music,” and all the results are expected in the form of an album rumored to be called American Blues.

American Blues, Vol. 1 – Pete Yorn

  • Pete Yorn performed this song solo/acoustic last night at The Barley St Tavern (Omaha, NE). He played to a room of 5 or 6 regulars, then passed the guitar around. What a class act!

    I’m anxiously awaiting this new album!

    Thanks for the preview!

  • Diggin the Yorn, thanks!

    note, if you’re out and about Sat. Oct. 11 in Denver, intriguing band playing at the unlikely venue of Bender’s Tavern, the band is Good Housekeeping … http://www.myspace.com/waifgarden

    Kind of an Ivy or Camera Obscura vibe … interesting though. They’re expected to play around 10:45 p

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
