This event is 21 and over
Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter/guitarist Nate Cook, young Boulder trio The Yawpers (named after Walt Whitman's promise to "sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world") recall a grittier version of Wilco, with as much raw country sensibility as twisted indie imagination. Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of indie-country and rock 'n' roll. The band's debut CD, Savage Blue, is due 11/29/2011 on Adventure Records.
The partnership between Adventure Records and the Yawpers aims to bring soulful, Southern-tinged rock 'n' roll from the Front Range to the larger music world. Savage Blue was recorded in three locations - with former Smashing Pumpkins engineer Bill Douglas in Colorado Springs, with talented young engineer Tira Neal at tastefully lo-fi studio in Broomfield, and at Yawpers guitarist Jesse Parmet's apartment/studio in Boulder. Highlighting the simultaneous romance and ravage of singer/guitarist Nate Cook, Savage Blue alternates between sinister indie dirge ala The Black Angels; poignant, off-the-rails Exile On Main St.-style rock; and desolate, dusty balladry.
Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of alt-country and rock 'n' roll. And they're playing in your town very soon.
