New Yuck

Just in time for their amazing Coachella set, Yuck let loose a new track via their website (http://yuckband.blogspot.com...anyone else find it endearing that such a great band has a humble blogspot address?).  As with most songs from their self-titled breakthrough album from last year, the track is full of 90's indie rock style distortions but with a bit of a tighter sound.  Having seen Yuck perform live last summer and then watching them via Coachella's live feed on Youtube, it seems to me they have been honing their chops...perhaps growing up a bit (they are, after all, only in their very early twenties) and getting better at being comfortable in their own skin, musically speaking.  They are obviously influenced by 90's rock, but it seems like they are figuring out that they are, in fact, their own band with their own unique sound.  Maybe this gives us a glimpse into what a sophomore album may have in store.  Till then, here's the track, "Chew":

Coachella Live Stream

Its April, which in music festival speak means "Coachella".  If you aren't making it out to the desert this weekend or next, never fear, the good folks at Coachella are making shows available via live stream on their YouTube channel. Its incredibly well organized- there are three channels that you can flip between in order to make sure you don't miss out on who you want to see, and it also lets you know who is coming up next.

Check it out all weekend long HERE.
