Now’s as good a time as any to talk about one of my new favorite bands. When describing what Yuck sound like, there are a lot of references to Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, and various other 90s alt-rock bands. Yuck mines these influences creating songs that lodge themselves in your brain for good. Their self-titled debut on Fat Possum has a several upbeat rocking songs but then a number of slower ones that show off singer Daniel Blumberg’s knack for tender lyrics. Their album is out now. Catch ’em on tour if you’re smart.
