First of all, if you have not yet listened to The Color by Yellowbirds, you are sorely missing out. This is a remarkable debut which even two years later is easy to listen to from start to finish. For those that like a little more psychedelia (insert Apollo Sunshine) mixed in with their Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.. this is definitely for you.
In 2013, Yellowbirds will release Songs from the Vanished Frontier on 5/28 via Royal Potato Family. The first single Young Men of Promise, can now be heard over at Pitchfork. Add it to your 2013 release lists…
Oh, one other thing, which is actually what originally brought Yellowbirds into our 2013 psyche (well, and also thanks to Eric D. Johnson from Fruit Bats) – this modern day all-star tribute concert that happened late last year at The Warfield in S.F… Sam was the musical director and he assembled a group of contributors that literally could be taken as a who’s-who from the Pickathon playbook.
Summer can’t come soon enough.
