YUCK – ChewTweet
Contributed by Erin Shay
UK-based foursome Yuck showcased their 2011 debut self-titled album and new single “Chew” during a relaxed late afternoon set at Coachella a few weeks back. The track comes from the band’s forthcoming (little known-about) release and is booming and outrageous. Definitely a good sign on the horizon for the endearing young band.
In general, Yuck are an extremely likable 90’s musical omelet with a drawn out psychedelic vibe and just the right amount of raucousness, distortion and understated enthusiasm to remind one of the Pumpkins, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. These cats are definitely worth checking out for their flavored, playful lyrics, spaced out lulls and shrieking guitars. The group are also known for a compelling aesthetic and extremely groovy album art, compliments of vocalist Daniel Blumberg.
