Yourself And The Air come to us from the small Midwestern town of Chicago. I was lucky enough to catch them at The Comet Tavern last week and really enjoyed. Yourself creates pure atmospheric indie rock, similar to Modest Mouse, with a little bit of Phoenix thrown in for fun.
I was hanging out between bands and noticed a guy sitting in the middle of the crowded bar writing in his journal. I asked him what he was writing and we began talking. Turns out that it was Drew Rasmussen, the drummer of Yourself and The Air. Super nice guy and even gave me a copy of Who’s Who In The Zoo. These guys are slowly but surely making their way through the blogsphere so if you haven’t checked them out already, I recommend it. Also you can check them out on Daytrotter .
