Entertainment Monday: Pete Yorn
Back in the days of Napster if anyone remembers those days I used to surf the internet music catalogs of certain t.v. shows I liked. It was a way for me to get exposed to new music and musicians which I would ultimately then seek out on Napster. One of the shows I really found a number of great artists on was Smallville, a t.v. show about Superman's beginnings growing up in the countryside when he was just starting to discover his powers. I do not know for sure if it was during a search on Smallville's music log when I was first exposed to Pete Yorn, but it was right around that time.
I bough the CD Music For the Morning After which came out in 2001 and it is easily one of my favorite CDs. There is just such a cool vibe to Pete Yorn's music. Sometimes I get so awash in music that I forget a bit about an artist. Even when I love their music. Pete Yorn's music has suffered that fate a bit with me. It's strange to me that I have lost connection with his music when I loved his CD so much and he has even had a song that came out a few years later which I loved. I do not believe I ever heard anything from him I do not like. What bought Pete Yorn's music back in focus for me is the fact that he has just released a new album called Arranging Time. I've heard one song from the album and was reminded how much I enjoy his music. I hope to dive in a bit more in the coming weeks to Yorn's music that has come out between the 15 years I have missed out on.
Until then though I wanted to share a few tunes from Musicforthemorningafter a song called Ice Age off a different album which I loved and the new song from Yorn that I have heard off of his most recent release. Hopefully a few of our readers might like getting exposed or "re" exposed to Yorn's music as I have been.
