I remember the first time I heard Pete Yorn was in a record shop in the Virginia Highlands in Atlanta that my friend Bev had introduced me to a few months prior. I was standing at the store's listening station playing a song or two from every album you could sample (it was a small boutique record store, so there were only a handful of options). As soon as the first song from Pete Yorn's first album, Music for the Morning After, played I knew I had to own it. I also remember thinking to myself this is a quintessential moment of college discovery; he wasn't the first artist I found on my own while in college, but he stands out the most to me. By no means am I a huge Pete Yorn follower, in fact, when I heard Relator I was a little surprised to discover he was still making albums. However, for me, the most surprising part about Relator is that he is accompanied by Scarlett Johansonn. She has such an interesting voice, and I think they sound great together. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you have a great weekend!
