Editors’ Notes

Joshua Hanson, frontman for the folk trio Yellow Red Sparks, describes himself as "the son of a lounge-singing mother and a theatrically trained father, who in turn became the genetic catalyst of their combined melancholia.” After hearing YRS’s 2013 eponymous debut album, it’s hard to argue with that condensed autobiography. “Buy Me Honey” sets a Southern gothic tone with rootsy instruments pushing a sullen country waltz as Hanson does little to mask his Idaho accent. Even over the sunnier melodies and uplifting shuffle of “My Machine Gun,” Hanson admits “I’ve never been free/No, not me/I’ll never be free enough.” In the stripped-down “To Love and Loathe,” he articulates the diametric duality that comes with the emotional tug-of-war when we fall helplessly in love with a person we can’t stand to be with. "Yellow Red Sparks” curiously serves as both a title track and namesake song. But after listening, it all makes sense; it’s easily the prettiest-sounding tune here, with the most confessional lyrics.
