Music Monday: Yuck


yuck

local artist to: new jersey, hiroshima, london

riyl: cajun dance party, alternative brit rock, the temper trap

etc: since i stumbled upon this band, i can’t stop listening and am psyched to see them in dallas in february and at sxsw in march.

forming little over a year ago, yuck are a band of four people who are sometimes a band of five people. daniel (vocals, guitar) and max (guitar) are from london. mariko (bass) is from hiroshima. jonny (drums) is from new jersey. the part-time fifth member is daniel’s sister ilana who joins him for the harmonies on the album and occasionally live. since the release of georgia, their debut single on transparent in march 2010, yuck have mainly been on tour. they have supported teenage fanclub, modest mouse and times new viking. their most recent single “rubber” was released by pharmacy recording company in october 2010 and remixed by mogwai. when they’re not on tour, yuck make a lot of stuff, like drawings and books and t-shirts. you can see some of these on their blog.  they self-produced and recorded their debut album at home, which will be be released in february on fat possum records/pharmacy recording company. fat possum website

listen & love
