“Jukebox Romance” was the debut of Joe Moore, which is to say, of THE YEARNING, one of the most promising and passionate groups in recent years for Elefant Records: their sixties echoes full of marvelous melodies and prodigious details, their absolutely adorable vocal arrangements, and their sweet and candid female voices all captivated us immediately and irrevocably.
That’s why we’re celebrating THE YEARNING’s new release, a digital single that opens with one of the best songs from “Jukebox Romance”, “Baby Be Mine”, a song that finds itself somewhere between THE MARVELETTES and THE PARIS SISTERS, with doo-wop details and soul-pop spirit. “All Hung Up On You”, the first of the single’s previously unreleased tracks, is like the missing piece from Phil Spector’s Christmas album – dreamy, full of marvelous arrangements, exciting and breathtaking. “Too Young”, another previously unreleased song, is one of those songs that breaks your heart forever, where they sing of adolescent love and the passing of time that chips away at the innocence of those first pure feelings we’re so nostalgic for. And the song does it as well as Dusty Springfield and Jackie DeShannon could have back in their day, winning us over with class, elegance and the strength of their performance.
It seems like Joe Moore is someone who’s going to make us very happy in the coming years. We are impatiently waiting for his new release before the end of summer. In the meantime, we can keep on enjoying the small gems of his musical craftwork.
