YUCK (Self-Titled)

Yuck is the worst way to describe a band this tasty–think 90s guitar outfits like Dinosaur Jr. and Built to Spill, with a little Buffalo Tom thrown in as well. Hailing from New York, Hiroshima and London (rehearsals must be a bitch), the bands’ self-titled debut is an immersive treat. Daniel Blumberg and Max Bloom, both previously of the band Cajun Dance Party, both contribute stellar vocals and guitar work; Mariko Doi keeps channels the Pumpkins’ D’arcy on bass and Jonny Rogoff anchors the drums. “Get Away” kicks the record off with a nice bass groove and a wall of sweet sonic guitars.

    Hey, can you acknowledge my question from last week?

    I’ve heard this group on Sirius XMU. I like the song. That scratchy over-loud guitar sound is becoming a signature for a lot of rock bands of recent years.

    Patrick: I’ll definitely check out Frontier Ruckus. Always looking for new sounds, and will always support Michiganders (I’m from Okemos myself).

    Matthew: There’s currently no plans to do a weekly podcast on indie music, but I’ll keep it in mind going forward–I do love to talk about what I’m listening to!
