Yuck - "Chew"

Yuck will be at Coachella this weekend and next, and have lined up a few Cali dates in between. This song’s release is most certainly timed as a ploy to raise awareness for these dates — so be aware of them — but it is also a very good song in its own right for fans of the guitar sounds on any Alan Moulder record, from MBV and Ride and Curve right up to the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s “Belong.” (For the record, Alan Moulder does not appear to have worked on this track, aside from writing the book on this sort of chunky alt.rock stomp-box manna.)

“We chew it together.” Romantic.

  5. making a sexy sandwich and chewing it

  6. Sounds a lot like MBV…. and that’s not a bad thing

  7. The guitars are decent, but the song is quickly forgettable I think.

  8. this is better than any song on the self-titled album (which I loved). this band is growing nicely.

  9. I know it’s simple, but hitting that F# in the guitar melody while the chord underneath is a C major gives me an erection in my heart.
