Like Neil Young and Alejandro Escovedo, Glenn Yoder glides between churning guitar-driven rock and folk-tinged acoustic balladry. Infusing the hallowed Texas songwriter tradition with modern jangly pop (think Wilco and the Jayhawks), other songs beckon to a darker place: swampy blues in the vein of Ray Wylie Hubbard and Morphine. Glenn Yoder & the Western States' latest record, "Javelina," released in January, rolls these influences into a powerful, 13-song punch. Eargazms called it "one of the finest alt-country albums of 2013," adding "this creepy backwoods beast of a record is full of huge pop hooks and muscular Drive-By Truckers-style rock." The Boston Globe and Patriot Ledger praised Yoder's skill for songcraft, while the Phoenix named "Javelina" one of "10 records that will set the tone in 2013."
