The olms

Recently, I had one of those rare experiences where Jason Bentley plays a song and I go running down the hallway to find out who it was. Something seemed familiar about the track but I couldn’t place it. Come to find out it’s a band called The Olms, a project from Pete Yorn and J.D. King.

I’m quite familiar with Pete – his 2001 debut “Musicforthemorningafter” was my favorite album that year and it is one of my defining moments in falling in love with KCRW, as I had just moved to LA and that’s where I discovered him.  He’s put out a bunch of great albums since, as well as a collaboration with Scarlett Johansson, so I was intrigued.

There’s not a lot of information about the group or the album, aside from the fact that it will be out in 2013, but we do have a taste of the music to offer.

It’s got a very SoCal pop vibe to it. It grabs you instantly. It’s called “Wanna Feel It“.

Some of the other tracks are a bit more breezy and jangly but they’re all really good. Can’t wait until we can share more with you!

    What happened to you Pete? Is musicforthemorningafter really all you had to say? This sounds like another throwaway from 10 years ago.

    • Bat Lanyard

    Cleo… if a song were good, would it really be farting on you? That would seem to imply that the song were nearer to shit.

    musicforthemorningafter was clearly a fluke.

    This is not good music, someone take this man's drum machine away from him.

    Thank you so much for keeping us all informed on topics of such great importance. I am particularly interested in the subject of mold.

    I saw them last night in an old movie theater in Chico,CA. Apparently it was only the third live show they had played. You could hear the lovely potential and I was disappointed that there was no CD yet. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them soon.
