About the album:

Like a lot of people during the aftermath of 9/11, Pernice Brothers’ band leader/pop songwriting genius Joe Pernice found himself contemplating a drastic life change. The self-reflection pointed to a need to rediscover the joy in things and hold on to them for dear life. This all led to Joe rounding up his dependable array of rock and roll cohorts (Thom Monahan, Peyton Pinkerton, Mike Belitsky, Laura Stein, Bob Pernice) and recording a new album.

Written and recorded in the Summer and Fall of 2002, Yours, Mine & Ours, the third Pernice Brothers album, may have been a joy to record, but it’s hardly a musical exercise in uplift. To quote Joe’s original 2003 press release, “The record may share its title with a breezy, feel-good Doris Day motion picture, but to quote the colossal talent that is Rip Torn, ‘This ain’t that.’”

Including modern power-pop classics such as “The Weakest Shade of Blue,” “Baby in Two,” and “One Foot in the Grave”, the album received near-universal acclaim from critics with stellar notices from both Pitchfork and The A.V. Club. The album also ranked #22 on The Village Voice’s 2003 Pazz and Jop poll.

“On Yours Mine & Ours, Pernice Brothers twist pop formula into something smart and occasionally perverse.” - Pitchfork

“The kind of record fans of intelligent pop music played with real emotion should purchase. Immediately.” - AllMusic
