2011 Review (So Far): Yuck

Yuck are a fairly run-of-the-mill indie rock band hailing from London, England. The difference between Yuck and their contemporaries is that they are capable of delivering in a variety of different ways. On their their self-titled debut, they show off their versatility and meld their different styles into a coherent full-length.

There are songs like "Rubber" and "Get Away" drenched in distortion and feedback reminiscent of early 90s grunge like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. There are other tracks that wander and yearn like a lovesick teenager, while others have a more laid back and detached feel. Anyway you slice it, Yuck are a very talented group of young musicians and I'm excited to see where they go in the future.

Here is a video of Yuck performing an excellent rendition of the laid back "Suicide Policeman" for Pitchfork TV. If you enjoy this, pick up their album.
