“Worthy Gubbins is like odds and ends, rubbish, maybe like a lucky rabbit’s foot or a favorite ring,” writes guitarist and vocalist Tyler Stolnack in an email. He’s defining the sound and feel of his four-piece folk-rock band.

In June 2009, the quartet accepted an invitation from FM 94.9’s Tim Pyles to record six tracks for a collection of recordings called The Pyles Sessions.

“[Pyles] took us to Studio West, which is a big studio in Rancho Bernardo with great equipment, and the songs were all done in one take,” writes Stolnack, the son of former 91X radio personality Russ Stolnack (aka Russ T. Nailz).
