    -Yankee Racers-
    "American Music"

    "...for American Music, Brewer and Jatcko strip back both the music and the overall approach, and while the album's name serves as a sleight of hand on the title track, it also defines the folk- and jazz-flecked approach to these acoustic songs.

    "Brewer, perhaps best known as the fiery lead guitarist for the blues/noir bar band Kentucky Knife Fight (to which Jatcko often contributes), shows his deft fingerpicking and dulcet banjo plucks here. On "What It Takes" the music takes the form of a circular folk ballad, laying a simple melodic bed for Brewer's searching lyrics and capable, if somewhat strained, vocals."

    "The twinkling waltz of "Stealing Romance," a Milk Carton Kids cover, borrows some of that duo's style with harmonized vocals and Brewer's pinpoint guitar solo."

lyrics

I still believe those first words that came to my mind
You are the first woman I can look straight in the eyes
And in our lives, we silenced time together
We gained years from losing fears of living a life for another

Lay down, this is our moment
Just you and me and forever
I'm yours, your mine together
Nothing to do, nothing to say
But stay drunk on dreams in infinite ways
We can live like this for ever

No sounds can silence what we hear in our hearts
When love like ours is unending, unending from the start
Time's meant less than wounds we've dressed together
Distance now has lost its power of keeping us from each other

Lay down, this is our moment
Just you and me and forever
I'm yours, your mine together
Nothing to say, nothing to do
But stay drunk on dreams of infinite youth
We can live like this for ever
We will live like this for ever

Last night I had the most amazing dream
I listened to your heartbeat as I drifted into sleep
And in this dream, I saw a distant home
Blurred from years of weathering each and every storm
Inside this home, I saw us drinking wine
You silver hair was matching all the whitened strands of mine
We had our salt and our bread throughout the years
We can live this dream for ever, ever, ever

With you, you, you. With you.

about

Yankee Racers St Louis, Missouri

Yankee Racers, the brainchild of St. Louis' Curt Brewer & Nathan Jatcko, is the electric duo founded upon the wave of their tumultuous mid-20's. Formed in 2010, Brewer & Jatkco decided to explore new territory in their writing & recording methods. The resulting aftermath is their first combined effort, Duologue. This album features performances from STL's finest such as Jason Holler & Seth Porter. ... more
