We’re glad to shine our Northwest Music Spotlight is on Jon Auer of The Posies and Big Star! Here’s a little bit from Jon about his first full-length solo album Songs from the Year of our Demise

“When I was working, I kept visualizing the record as a soundtrack to the end of an extremely turbulent era for me. I’d had the title and a loose concept for what I wanted it to be since the late ’90s but wasn’t sure I’d had enough time to redefine myself or move on. It just took me a lot longer to start the process and fill in the blanks than I could have ever anticipated” – Read more

Here are a couple songs from the new record…

Six Feet Under – (MP3)
Four Letter Word – (MP3)

Jon’s been touring pretty extensively… Check out pictures from his Tour Photo Diary and catch him at Mars Bar on July 1.
