The Yawpers blend acid blues, murder ballads on American Man

Illustration for article titled The Yawpers blend acid blues, murder ballads on American Man

Into Elvis, but also into the MC5? Like morbid country tracks, but also have a penchant for acid blues? If your tastes run eclectic, you might want to check out The Yawpers, Denver’s latest contribution to the musical world. With a new record, American Man, out this Friday on Bloodshot, The Yawpers are looking to take listeners on a road trip across a psychedelic wasteland, though they skew a little more Hunter S. Thompson than Jim Morrison. A.V. Club readers can get first crack at American Man, which we’re streaming exclusively below. If you like what you hear, you can preorder the record over at Bloodshot’s website, or catch the group live on tour. Dates are below.
