Jon Auer

Jon Auer's first full-length solo album, Songs from the Year of our Demise (Pattern 25 Records), was released last month, and, for whatever reason, I'm a little bit late to the party. Taking some time off from The Posies, Jon is on tour promoting his new album, which has been getting some great reviews.

Jon has called the record an "all consuming, important-to-me, it's-my-baby type of affair," and from the tracks I've heard, his baby came out well, with all ten fingers and all ten toes. Check out the tracks below - courtesy of Pattern 25 - and visit John's MySpace page too.
