Uncle Skeleton

Uncle Skeleton is the brainchild of Ross Wariner – once best known as half of the Nashville, TN band Kindercastle. Finding himself with a overflowing myriad of ideas and an overactive drive to try them all out, Pancho Chumley was born.

Equally inspired by the creations of ELO or Brian Eno as it is Mouse on Mars or Brazzilian Tropicalia, the works of Uncle Skeleton put forth a journey inspired by electronic pop, bossa nova, jazz, ambient otherworldy works.

The latest album, Too Young, Too Old, was released in early November, 2013.

Uncle Skeleton - 'Too Young, Too Old'

Too Young, Too Old

yk 022
Release Date: Nov 12th, 2013

Uncle Skeleton's fourth album, Too Young, Too Old, is his most accurately realized and exceuted. The sunnier, poppier moments are brighter than ever, the bossa nova moments more melancholy and the ambient pieces manage to maintain their spacey place while still keeping a grip on you. The 41 minute runtime covers everything perfectly succintly.
