Pete Yorn - Precious Stone

by Leonie Mercedes Rating:6 Release Date:2010-12-12

The follow up to last year's Scarlett Johansson collaboration 'Break Up', Pete Yorn's eponymous third album was produced by Pixies frontman Frank Black, and the latest single from it, 'Precious Stone' is song-writing at its rawest. Grunge casts a shadow over Yorn's jangling tale of fragile love, delivered with such clarity he could be in the same room. With the album recorded in a makeshift studio in Salem over five days in 2008, this intimacy could only be thanks to Black's success in stripping down Yorn's songs to the bare bones. Insistent, though not necessarily memorable.
