Yowler is the latest solo effort by Maryn Jones, a musician based out of Columbus, OH. Very active in the mid-west music scene, Jones often performs in Saintseneca, and is the primary songwriter for the Salinas Records pop-punk band, All Dogs, who have been long time favorites here at DDW.
Maryn Jones joins the DDW family with her debut release as Yowler, a collection of songs written over time and recorded living rooms and bedrooms in the winter of 2013/14 titled, The Offer. The songs are mostly about sleeping and thinking about things you shouldn’t think about.
The vinyl and cassette reissue of Yowler's fantastic debut "The Offer" is available now :)
The reissue includes two bonus tracks, including "Go", on which NPR expressed "no matter the depth of the loneliness in Jones' lyrics, Yowler's songs exert a kind of empathetic, magnetic pull. She might be alone, but she makes you feel alone right there with her."
Pitchfork said about "The Offer" - "The album is a deep, sad comfort, more complex than it first appears, like a pond frozen over and still writhing with life."
Yowler is currently in the studio working on the follow up to "The Offer", keep an eye out for updates in the new year ;)
