Biography

His fifth solo studio effort and Vagrant Records debut, Pete Yorn sees the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter peeling away the baroque orchestrations of his critically acclaimed previous work to expose a beating rock ‘n’ roll heart. Much of the eponymous album’s remarkable raw power comes courtesy of producer Frank Black, who in 2008 invited Yorn up to a Salem, Oregon studio ... Read more in Amazon's Pete Yorn Store

The phonograph crackling that opens Pete Yorn's Musicforthemorningafter is an appropriate gesture for an artist hailed as the best thing to come out of South Jersey since Bruce Springsteen. Actually, Yorn doesn't sound a thing like Springsteen, but he does possess a classic pop craftsmanship shared by tradition-minded singer-songwriters such as Neilson Hubbard and Elliot Smith.

On the cool, infectious "Life on a Chain", Yorn's relaxed crooning evokes the spirit of Bruce Cockburn, while "Simonize", ostensibly a love song penned by Jack the Ripper, calls to mind Big Star-period Alex Chilton. Rhythmically, the part-time drummer and multi-instrumentalist (he scored the Farrelly brother's movie Me, Myself and Irene and plays most of the instruments here himself) leans toward the drone lilt of early New Order and Joy Division, resulting in a smooth fusion of American and Anglo influences that make Yorn a new artist well worth watching. --Bill Forman

Pete Yorn is a real talent who on the merits of this first offering will go far. From the opening crackling lines of 'Life On A Chain' to the closing, beautifully crafted 'Simonize' this album rarely falters. Yorn shows great competence in taking on a variety of styles yet retaining a distinctive sound. 'Simonize' could indeed be a lost Simon & Garfunkel tune whereas 'Black' sounds like classic Pavement. Multi-instrumentalist Yorn is said to write most of his songs starting with a drum beat and the presence of some interesting rythmns would suggest this may well be the case.
Comparisons to Ryan Adams have been made but Pete Yorn's sound is on the whole quite different. However, both share a similar ear for melody and pursue similar styles of music. 'Musicforthe morningafter' is undoubtedly a grower and given a few plays really comes into its own. There are stilla couple of tracks that I haven't quite got into yet but on the whole this is a very impressive debut that bodes well for the future. Check it out!

I have put off writing this review for far too long, and now is the time for me to do it!
I first heard Pete Yorn in 2002 when I purchased the Spiderman soundtrack and heard his song 'Undercover'. I was amazed by the track and I just knew I had to buy the debut album of this virtually unknown bloke.
The album was nothing like anything I had listened to before. It quite literally is music you can listen to on any morning. With laid back tracks such as 'Lose You' and 'Sleep Better' mixed in between up beat ones such as 'Murray' and 'Black', the album has a brilliant playlist so much so that you don't ever have to skip a track.
If you have ever seen the films 'The Sweetest Thing' or '40 days and 40 nights', you would have come across the song 'Strange Condition', which I feel is one of the best and well written songs on the album. You'll never grow tired of it.
I have no favourite track on this because I love them all too much, but if I was forced to choose one, it would have to be the simply beautiful 'On Your Side'. The lyrics and melody are just so simple, no one would ever think to have done anything like that. But Pete has. Pure genius.

Musicforthemorningafter is an excellent album - and is definitely a grower. I bought it after hearing 'For Nancy' - a great rock track with a great riff. That track however is probably not representative of the album as a whole - but that's not a criticism. The album is full of great melodies and is an album which you can listen to again and again without getting bored. Okay so Pete Yorn wears his Smiths influences on his sleeve, but that's no bad thing! Most unususally for me, this is one album where I love each track - like I say - all killer no filler.... I would highly recommend this album - you'll like it and then grow to love it! C'mon people tell your friends!

Pete Yorn's debut album reminds me a lot of 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley but not for the usual reasons. Pete Yorn's voice is nothing like Buckley's, in fact he reminds me of J.Mascis from Dinosaur Jnr. However, it is his mixed up style of American folk and country meets British indie and pop that I believe is similar. Both crooners were obviously die-hard Smiths fans. As well as the pure joy and excitement that this album contains. I really haven''t heard anyone else that sounds as in love with their craft since 'Grace'. I hope that Pete Yorn can continue to make such astounding music into the future. I predict that this album will be a real slow burner but don't be surprised to see it on many a rock critics end of year list. Standout tracks include 'Song For Nancy'. What a corker!

I bought this CD not having ever heard of Pete Yorn, just on a recomendation from a friend. There aren't many albums which you can say you like every track, but music for the morning after is definatly one. A great album and a must for fans of soft guitar rock. (plus it only costs 6 quid on amazon, so definatly buy it!)
