Nomadic Pursuits is the second studio album by Yawning Man, released on 22 June 2010. With a five-year gap between the first album and this one, the band had time to further expand on their freeform desert sound.

Background[edit | edit source]

Following a series of tours in support for the band's first record Rock Formations, Yawning Man would self-record and produce their second album. Original bassist Mario Lalli would be back in the fold as well. Nomadic Pursuits would be released on CD and on LP with different artwork and in four different colors (Black, Blue Marble, Red and Sage Green Marble).

Nomadic Pursuits at the time saw positive reception from critics and was even awarded #9 on The Obelisk's Top 20 albums of 2010.[1]
