John Andrews and the Yawn
Bad Posture, the new album by John Andrews and the Yawn, was mostly 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. Andrews’ band, The Yawns, has been crystallized with staples from the New England freak scene; Rachel Neveu & Lukas Goudreault (MMOSS/Soft Eyes) & Joey Schneider. Andrews and his group make music that lets nature come into the song, making natural noises like Beatles backward taping. This is magnificent, lonely, isolationist music, to be played early evening around a campfire, staring at the stars, wondering what our place in this world is.
