EDITORS’ NOTES

While they’re clearly inspired by classic late ‘80s and early ‘90s shoegaze and indie rock—Ride, Dinosaur Jr., Pavement—this young London quintet proved on their self-titled debut that they could spin their influences into a memorable, blissful, fuzzed-out sound all their own. Whether heavy in the red on the ebullient “Holing Out” or swooning on the sweet, reverb-laden ballad “Stutter,” Yuck’s sunny songwriting has that sense of infinite possibility that, at its best, underground rock music is all about.

Retro?

You gotta love it. Getting old means watching your music "come back." And nobody ever sees it coming. We're not that old, we think to ourselves... This is an absolutely excellent album of music that sounds like these kids got into their parents early 90's record collection- and found it enthralling. They are trying on little bits of Yo La Tengo, Pavement, Built to Spill, and Dinosaur- without ever sounding derivative or unoriginal. It's that old green leather jacket, hanging perfectly on your kid's shoulders- looking as good on him as it ever did on you. Good stuff, then and now!

Wonderful album

Don't let the naysayers change your opinion on this group, make up your own mind and ignore all of the "I liked this band the first time" and "everything copies everything" comments. Yes, their influences are obvious, but every musician is influenced by another whether you like it or not, and it can't help but effect the kind of music they want to play. The style may not be "new", per se, but this band does a damn good job at bringing us 20 somethings back to the early 90s heavenly goodness of rock. Now get off your high horse and enjoy this band's music for what it is: a meticulously crafted time capsule that is definitely worth the price of admission.
