YARN's LUCKY 13...

We've got new music and we want you all to hear it, but we really want to do something different. So what we are going to do, is release what we are calling virtual 45's, we'll release one each month for the entire year of 2018. Remember what 45's were? some of you might not, they were singles back in the old days, they're smaller vinyl records that spin faster, at 45 rpm, they had a Side A and a Side B, one song on each side, and that's how it was done, and that's how we're going to do it again, only entirely through our website, digital only (no actual vinyl 45.)

The project is called, Lucky 13, you know, because we're all so damn lucky, and 13 just happens to be our favorite number, hell I was born on the 13th, and so was Rod, my jersey in youth hockey had a big 13 on it, Rod lives on 13th St in Brooklyn, I even turned 21 on Friday the 13th, don't remember much of it but that's another story for someone else to tell. 13 just seems right.

We'll be releasing each virtual 45 on the 13th of every month, starting January 13th. There will be unique artwork, we'll tell you about the songs, we might even get a little weird and add some other content just for fun. Along with the download of the 45, which includes 2 brand new original songs, we will include a unique alternate version of one of those tracks, that will only ever be available by purchasing that 45, the alternate version track will never be on a record, it will never be on iTunes, and it will NEVER be on Spotify.

That's 24 new tracks and 12 alternate versions for your listening pleasure, so get on board, and join us all year long for brand new music from Yarn.

This Is The Year

Yarn

Despite several previous albums and a sound so agreeable it was seemingly made for the mainstream, Yarn has yet to create the bigger buzz needed to bring them the attention they so rightly deserve. Boldly optimistic This Is the Year(out May 15) is a seamless blend of vibrant, inspired, back porch melodies and narrative. Its descriptive lyrics detail the challenges faced when one’s life is jolted off its bearings. Indeed, the record documents in detail the band’s determination to move forward despite uncertain circumstances and internal changes. It’s an album about re-evaluating relationships, making tough choices, and sometimes skirting the rules -- a tack that inevitably finds them emerging more optimistic and fulfilled than ever. “This is the year we’re going to find our way,” the lyrics proclaim on the title track, and given the upbeat appeal imbued in these grooves, there’s every reason to believe Yarn is on the right track.

Indeed, given the group's rugged and resilient sound -- along with its affable and assured delivery -- Yarn’s approach reflects both classic and contemporary leanings. “Carolina Heart” is as endearing an album opener as has been heard recently. But every song that follows -- be it the sprightly “Love/Hate,” the forthright shout-out “I’m the Man,” or the tender ballad “Fallin’” -- rises to the same standard.

The easy sway of “Dolly,” an obvious homage to that beautiful country queen, adds another engaging additive, as does the sweetly reassuring “Easy Road” and the aforementioned title track. Comparisons are inevitable -- Pure Prairie League, Dan Fogelberg, hints of Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers -- but Yarn’s mastery of the country-rock idiom is indisputable.

To call This Is The Year an album for the ages may seem a stretch for those who are unaware, but given these immediately engaging melodies and the sheer skill and savvy invested in each note and every verse, you will likely become a true believer after only a single listen.

Shine The Light On

Yarn

Within this 12-track acoustic collection, all written by lead singer Blake Christiana, listeners witness the poignant emotion and emotive story-telling that has come to define the sextet s sound, which straddles the genres of Americana and alt-country, with a dash of jam-band injected on select tracks. "I really wanted to make another acoustic record, focus on the songs, and revisit the early days of Yarn, says Christiana. Some of the best songs we've written live on this record. It's a pretty dark collection, but we are confident you can find the light shining through." John Oates of Hall and Oates appears on two tracks that he co-wrote with Christiana. Oates says, From the first time I heard Yarn perform at Music City Roots in Nashville I became a fan. They have one foot in the traditional sound of bluegrass and the other foot stepping into the future. It was an honor for me to co-write and collaborate with them on their new record. Great playing, great singing and great songwriting, what more is there?

Almost Home

Yarn

Early into 2012, strong storytelling and accomplished musicianship help to propel Yarn’s Almost Home into the category of the year’s must-hear albums. Sounding like something bred in America’s southern states, these Brooklyn natives have an authentic technique that echoes of America’s country roots with an infusion of rock and promises that those old-style rhythms will continue to evolve, regardless of where they are reborn. A triple threat in the music world, not only is the storytelling and musicianship tighter than the bark on a hickory tree, but the vocal and harmonizing skills of the band’s three singers are equally undeniable.

Come On In

Yarn

Come On In finds this Brooklyn-based sextet digging ever deeper into the sounds of classic honky-tonk and bluegrass, with a touch of Gram Parsons-style visionary poetics evident as well. The band’s mixture of down-home acoustic charm and urban-folkie intelligence gives Come On In a unique flavor that grows more appealing with repeated listening. Blake Christiana’s soft drawl captures a weary survivor’s spirit, especially on dusty laments like “Abilene,” “Alone On The Weekend” and “These Bars Don’t Look Too Friendly.” In tandem with his bandmates, he escalates easily from easy-going tempos into hellacious solo flights, especially on the galloping “New York City Found.” Yarn leans towards the lonesome side of town — but even melancholy numbers like “Schenectady” are saved from self-pity by elegant melodies and sharp wordplay. “Down On Your Luck” shakes off the blues for some high-energy fun, while “I Wanted To Get High” is a woozy, bluesy number lit up by Andrew Hendryx’s sparkling mandolin.

Empty Pockets

Yarn

For a bunch of Brooklynites, Yarn sure knows its country music. Empty Pockets, the band’s second release, sees them borrowing from country, folk, and classic rock & roll to knit together a sound that is Americana at its genrebending best. Bluegrass serves as the undercurrent to most of the album’s songs, thanks to mandolinist Andrew Hendryx and guest fiddle player Casey Dreissen (currently a member of Abigail Washburn’s Sparrow Quartet), while living legend Tony Trischka adds some wicked banjo to the background, content to let the vocals take center stage.

The band’s frontman and primary songwriter Blake Christiana has a voice reminiscent of Ryan Adams at his drugged out, Pneumonia-era best; thus it’s fitting that several tracks sound like they could be lost Whiskeytown songs, from the steel guitar crying in the background to the heartbreaking lyrics. “5 Guitars” even features bourbon-smooth vocals from ex-Whiskeytowner Caitlin Cary. Even old New Bohemian Edie Brickell joins the band to lend some harmony to the torchy and twangy “I’m Down”. Yarn may be one of the better unknown alt-country bands out there, but if satellite radio gets ahold of Empty Pockets, they won’t be unknown much longer.

Yarn

Yarn

In a year that is already jammed with exceptional releases, Yarn makes the case for an entry into annual Top 10 lists. This Brooklyn-based band scores the rare triple-header of excellent country-bluegrass musicianship, memorable melodies and honeyed vocals. A little over a year ago Blake Christiana was considering quitting life as a musician but decided to take one last shot. Hopefully, the results have inspired him to stick around for awhile. Inspired by bluegrass workouts of David Grisman and Jerry Garcia and the songwriting of Gram Parsons, Yarn's 15 tracks feature stories of bad men doing unsavory things.
