Last night, April 25, 2011 at Webster Hall in New York, a trio of great bands (with bizarre names – Yawn, Yuck and Tame Impala) played a sold out show. First on the bill was Chicago based Yawn. Having experienced their music for the first time when they walked out on stage, I didn’t know what to expect. I’d heard about them as they’ve generated a fair amount of buzz on the interwebs, but you know most of those reviews just put me to sleep. Their music has a nice combination of psychedelic trance, dance, electronic sounds and rock. Needless to say, I became a fan before the first song was over. Hoping to score some merch at the conclusion of the band’s 40 minute set, lead singer Adam Gil uttered the magic words – “you can download our EP for free on our official site.” He failed to mention you can also download a free remix EP from the same place! Get to downloading (please donate money for the download if you can as well) and put Yawn on your musical radar. They will make you do anything but fall asleep. Thanks Yawn!
