Yawning Man – Macedonian Lines (New Full Album) Formed in 1986, Yawning Man are the original stoner/desert rock band you may not have heard of but just because ‘you weren’t there, man’ doesn’t mean you should ignore a band once described by scene legend Brant Bjork as “the GREATEST band I’ve ever seen”. Yawning Man continue to establish their exceptionally unique approach to rock music on the bands latest album ” Macedonian Lines” (Heavy Psych Sounds Records) This follow up to the critically acclaimed “Revolt Against Tired Noises” shows a further maturing of melody, dynamics and emotion in the bands song writing. Yawning Mans roots lay at the foundation of the desert rock and stoner rock sub genres however the music the band creates is truly organic and visceral, conjuring a flowing imagery and a emotional response.
On this release the band has a darker and massively heavier sound than past recordings as most of these tracks were developed in live performance and then fully realized in the studio. Yawning Man returned to Gatos Trail Studio in the Joshua Tree CA desert to record this album and the space and beauty of the surroundings is ever present in every track. Heavy, beautiful, and delicate. Gary Arce, Mario Lalli and Bill Stinson continue to expand and dig deep with every track. A band renowned for sojourns into epic instrumental jams, on Macedonian Lines Yawning Man may have reigned in the excess but, overall, they simply sound timeless; conjuring absorbing, ever-evolving, ageless tomes which ebb and flow through seemingly seamless improvisation and a psych style all of their own.
