NOAH STERBA

THE 13-BAR BLUES

GRAPEFRUIT


Format: LP
Cata No: GY7-2
Barcode: 600197677216
Noah Sterba is one of Omaha’s underground music heroes,
literally performing most of his songs and poetry into dented
Radio Shack microphones in the subterranean basements of
tornado alley for the last decade. Beside releasing several
solo cassettes on Unread Records, he was a founding
member of short-lived critical darlings Yuppies, lo-fi local
legends The Prairies (which also featured David Nance),
and The Subtropics (whose posthumous double cassette
is seeing vinyl reissue in 2017), and has been an important
member of Simon Joyner’s Ghosts since 2011. He is also
involved in a multimedia art/publishing collaboration called
Slowed Soul with fellow local Omaha artist and musician
Jeff Sedrel.
In a time when so much music is fueled by self-congratulatory
irony, The 13-Bar Blues is refreshing for its unapologetic
sincerity. The album distills folk, blues, punk
rock and country influences and merges them with poetry,
allowing Sterba to graciously tear up his hat in the face
of those who have come before him as he claws through
America’s gnarly 21st century landscape with his tongue,
pen, busted guitar, and wide open eyes.
“I think it is music that needs to be out there right now...
Almost every sort of rock or folk music, musics born of
protest and boiling blood and grit and energy, has lulled
back into apathy. Over the last six years this album created
itself and whether or not it means anything is up to other
people to decide, I suppose. What I can say is I put every
ounce of guts and soul I got into this. It is me being as
convicted and truthful as I can be about all I have seen
around me and inside me since I started doing this thing.”
