Yes Face pre-orders available now. Right now.

From our label, uvulittle: We are now accepting pre-orders for Yes Face, the second CD by Chicago's The Crooked Mouth.

All pre-orders will ship by Nov 25. Digital ships instantly and we're including the mp3 version for all pre-order orders. Yes Face picks up where their debut ended. A little less country, perhaps.. First, though, the recording is lovely. Simple, complex, beautiful... It breathes. Deeply. As expected, the vocal arrangements are well conceived and executed flawlessly by people with an obvious passion for such perfections. The instrumentation is tasteful - bringing banjo and bluegrass sounds to folky show tune-y (almost) rock numbers. There's a nod to the blues in there, too. Fun, serious, sad and furious. Actually, quite transcendent.

Treat yourself to some songs (there's 20 of 'em on there!) by one of Chicago's most creative musical outfits.

The official release party is on December 7 at Links Hall. See our Gigs page for more info.

If it's a dorkish thing to drive around listening constantly to your own band's CD, then I am the biggest dork there is. I can't get enough of this record that we are so very close to completing. It's called Yes Face and that is, in fact, the face I am making behind the wheel of my car as the songs go round and round. I hope that you all will like it as much as I do. Soon, my pets, soon a November or December release date will be confirmed on these very web pages. In the meantime, for your listening pleasure, here is the version of Spite that appears.
