John Andrews & The Yawns announce Bad Posture 3/10/17

by Woody on February 10, 2017


John Andrews has spent some time playing with Woods, Widowspeak and Kevin Morby as well as band Quilt. I really dig this track below. Its got a very cool sound to it. Kind of like a blend of Woods & Whitney. Anyway, I’m excited to hear some more.

The songs were written slowly & quietly throughout the winter, usually late at night next to the wood stove for warmth. It was recorded in his barn with the doors ajar, welcoming the springtime. The humble recording gear invites the outside noises in. You can hear the crickets chirping with the occasional truck driving by. The songs themselves lend their hand like slow backwoods Beatles demos covered in a thin blanket of tape hiss. John’s voice lulls us in an earthy calmness as he sits hunched like a scarecrow over the piano.
