Yuck – “Middle Sea”

By Tom Breihan / August 14, 2013

Yuck frontman Daniel Blumberg quit the band earlier this year, but the young British fuzz-rockers aren’t going to let that slow them down. Last month, they returned as a trio and released “Rebirth,” a way better song than anyone was expecting. And now they’ve announced plans for their sophomore album Glow & Behold, which is set to arrive this fall. They’ve also shared another song, the gloriously bleary “Middle Sea,” a piece of prime ’90s-style effects-pedal comfort-food with the sort of crustily triumphant chorus hook that would make J Mascis proud. Also, is that a trumpet? I think that’s a trumpet! The song is great, and you can hear it and check out the album’s tracklist below.

Glow & Behold is out 10/1 on Fat Possum/Pharmacy, and I can’t tell if I want “Lose My Breath” to be a Destiny’s Child cover or not.
