Album Notes
"(Curless) makes his own brand of homegrown power pop that sounds like a morphing of Shoes, Crosby Stills & Nash and Teenage Fanclub. Your Gracious Host is one of Power pop's best kept secrets!" - Jam

"Echoes of early/mid 80's Post-REM bands show up here and there but it is a sound not explored often in modern pop and I am glad to report Your Gracious Host deliver on the promise of their debut"- Not

"Really impressive collection of hooks, melodies and good vibes... in other words Pop tastic!"- Rocktober magazine

Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed debut album comes Easy Red, the glorious second record from midwestern pop outfit Your Gracious Host. Bursting with energy, melody and left turns everywhere, this record leaves you spinning and wanting more. This is guitar based pop music but angular and sharp with dense, layered arrangements that reward repeated listens. Tom Curless (a multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter previously with Chicago based outfits Autoliner, Window Nine and Turnpike Down) remains in the drivers seat of YGH handling most of the instruments and vocals himself, but this time he adds the unique talents of Rachel Grekowicz on flute and Tom’s old Autoliner cohort John Ross joins on vocals scattered throughout proceedings. All of the essential musical ingredients that make Your Gracious Host singularly unique are here: Driving, taut rhythm, vocal harmonies, intriguing, often confessional lyrics, and guitars, guitars and more guitars. Which poses one serious musical question: What else could you really want from a three minute pop song?
