James Yorkston – Catch

May 30, 2012

Scottish songwriter James Yorkston returns this August with his first LP in 4 years,  I Was A Cat From A Book. It was recorded in just “5 wintry days” at the Bryn Derwen Studios of North Wales, and — if our first taste, “Catch”, is any indication — feels just as intimate and wrapped up in a warm blanket as that detail might imply. Nick Drake is the most immediate reference, but there are decades of folk coupled with hints of Belle and Sebastian here as well. Stream the gorgeous, lilting tune below:
