Champaign, IL's Elsinore has created the ultimate moment of certainty with the Yes Yes Yes full length. Channeling the work of modern-day masters Ben Gibbard and Sufjan Stevens, songwriter Ryan Groff, has crafted a batch of vivacious yet personal songs that joyfully soundtrack the simplistic bliss of life in the Midwest.
Recorded over two years and a thousand studio hours, Yes Yes Yes is a textured and dynamic song-scape. The album flows organically through epic, passionate rockers (Landlocked, Gasoline), hushed and intimate confessions (Body of Water, Breathing Light), and playful accounts of legendary locals (Chemicals). Groff's Thom Yorke-esque voice elicits moods of vulnerability and positivity, and pulls from the entire spectrum of love itself.
The album was co-produced with Adam Schmitt (HUM, Headlights) and Anthony Gravino, and was mastered by Jon Pines (Billy Bragg & Wilco, Jay Bennett, Braid) in Champaign-Urbana, IL.
Yes Yes Yes is much more than a statement of positivity. It's an enthusiastic realization; an honest and autobiographical display of humanism. These are stories of self-examination, sacrifice, compromise, and lessons learned, all leading to the avoidance of a quarter-life crisis.
