On September 28th, Vagrant Records will release the latest studio album from Pete Yorn. Produced by Frank Black (The Pixies), this visceral 11-song collection follows Yorn’s two 2009 releases. Back & Fourth, hailed as “haunting” by Entertainment Weekly. While Rolling Stone said, “Yorn has found his voice on Back and Fourth, a mostly acoustic beauty.” It was followed in September by Break Up, a collaboration with Scarlett Johansson that Paste said “succeeds in its ambitious goal of capturing the spirit – if not the sound – of the late 60’s musical partnership between Serge Giansbourg and Brigette Bardot.” Yorn’s forthcoming album, a self-titled volume with a plain black cover, was recorded on the spur-of-the-moment, in the summer of 2008. Yorn was in the middle of making Back & Fourth in Nebraska when he got an email from Black suggesting that they record some tunes. Intrigued by the notion of experimenting with Frank, Yorn hopped a plane to Salem, OR, where the two set up an impromptu studio. They recorded the album in a mere five days – even though the singer-songwriter-guitarist came down with the flu two days into the process.

The main benefit of Continuous Integration is the ability to flag errors as they are introduced into a system instead of waiting multiple days for test failures and critical errors to be identified during the QA cycle. This post isn’t about the virtues of using CI, it’s about how to setup an optimal environment in a Maven shop. Here are seven tips for running Maven builds in a CI system such as Hudson.
