Local CD Review: Y'uns

Y'uns (PMF Productions)

Y’uns, a goofy side project for Lonesome Coyotes singer Steve Horton, along with Danny Gammon, J.P. Reddick, Stan Turner, and J. Miller, betrays its laid-back origins in the selection of songs on its first disc. From John Prine’s “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian,” the Jazz Age pro-pot standard “If You’re a Viper,” and Roger Miller’s “Chug-a-Lug,” the songs range from silly to even sillier. It’s a very high-quality silliness, though, and the band’s instrumental skills match the songs’ distinguished pedigrees. Contributions from local all-stars Michael Crawley, Tom Pryor, Hector Qirko, Will Horton, James Page, Wil Wright, and disc producer Eric Nowinski on everything from loon calls, tambourine, and theremin add to the polished but low-key feel.
