Yuck 'S/T'

Product Information //


Yuck's self-produced self-titled debut showcases a band capable of sprinting off in pretty much any direction you can think of, so diverse and fully realized is its vision. It also shows that their previous releases were merely skimming the tip of the iceberg in terms of what the quartet of Daniel Blumberg, Max Bloom, Mariko Doi and Jonny Rogoff are capable of. This is a confident, wildly ambitious record, but also one which brims over with a ragged warmth and tenderness, tipping its hat at alt music heroes past such as East River Pipe, Dinosaur Jr and Sparklehorse while at the same time retaining a unique identity entirely its own.
From the rousing call to arms of the opener Get Away, to the hypnotic sturm und drang of Rubber, and the grungy serotonin rush of Operation, it is clear that this is a band in full control of their powers when it comes to anthemic and offbeat guitar rock. But they also reveal an achingly fragile side too, as with the gorgeous, heartsick croon on Suck or on Sunday where Blumberg asks, Did you take the rhythm from me? Yesterday I had it all over chiming, jangling guitars.
