Makin Waves Song of the Week: "Elevation" by Yawn Mower

After years of releasing nationally acclaimed EPs and singles, Asbury Park indie darlings Yawn Mower are ending a fall tour in support of their Mint 400 Records full-length debut album, “To Each Their Own Coat,” on Nov. 26 at hometown venue House of Independents with homies Echo Plum, Dentist, and Surf Haven sharing the loaded local bill. The LP includes the college radio hit “Elevation,” the Makin Waves Song of the Week. PHOTO BY MELISSA MCLAUGHLIN

Beloved Asbury Park two-piece Yawn Mower are returning home on Nov. 26 to celebrate the vinyl release of their long-awaited full-length debut album, “To Each Their Own Coat,” on the invaluable North Jersey indie Mint 400 Records. The locally loaded bill at Asbury’s House of Independents also will feature Echo Plum, Dentist, and Surf Haven.

After years of releasing nationally acclaimed EPs and singles on Mint 400, Yawn Mower’s long-awaited LP was supported by a fall East Coast tour that will conclude with the homecoming show. They’ll be sure to play three singles from “To Each Their Own Coat,” including the college radio hit “Elevation,” the Makin Waves Song of the Week.

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “Elevation” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on Nov. 25 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com. If you miss it, you also can tune in any time in the archives at The Penguin or MixCloud

Other recent YM singles are “Sixteen Minutes” and “Broken Filaments”.

Expanding the sound of vocalist-guitarist Mike Chick and vocalist-drummer Bif Swenson, the nine-song album was engineered by Evan Barnard, who’s worked with Asbury indie act Teenage Halloween, as well as Mannequin Pussy. Mixing was handled by Chris Baglivo (The Obsessives, Big Nothing), while mastering was by Ryan Shwab (Hop Along, Modern Baseball). Yawn Mower recorded “To Each Their Own Coat” at Big Mama’s (now Jamtown Recording) in Philadelphia, ByrdHouse in Manahawkin and Waving Cat in Asbury Park. 

To capture the full, lush album, the two-piece also expanded live with Nick Gianatiempo and Donna Yurcisin of Grasser, Eric Friedman of Earth Telephone, singer-guitarist Pam Flores, and violinist Nicole Scorsone.
