Yuck – “Southern Skies” Video & Southern Skies Stream

Yuck's surprise Southern Skies EP already yielded the drifting "Athena" and the driving "Another One," both of which continued the band's mastery of shoegaze-inflected '90s alt-rock sounds. The EP was released this week, and its other two songs sound unlike any previous Yuck material. "Set In Motion" is a twangy Laurel Canyon psych-po… More »

Yuck – “Another One”

After coming back strong with their sophomore album Glow & Behold last year, British indie-fuzz revivalists Yuck are already making plans to follow it up with a new EP called Southern Skies. They've already shared one song from it, the pretty and soul-comforting "Athena," and now they've got another one called "Another One," a… More »

Yuck – “Athena”

Last year, Yuck overcame the loss of a frontman, became a trio, and released Glow & Behold, one of our favorite albums of the year. They aren't slowing down. The band recently recorded a new batch of tunes, which they're planning on releasing an an EP sometime soon. And the first of those… More »

Yuck – “Somewhere” Video

2013 is the year that British fuzz-rockers Yuck lost their frontman and still released Glow & Behold, one of our favorite albums of the year. And now they're ending things by giving us a video for the contemplative six-minute zone-out "Somewhere," one of that album's highlights. Jacob Perlmutter, a friend of the… More »

Yuck – “Lose My Breath” Video

When I heard "Lose My Breath" from Yuck's Glow & Behold -- one of the year's best albums, mind you -- I didn't picture impossibly cute ducklings or precious children splashing around in a kiddie pool. But that's what directors Michael Reich and Anthony Baldino envisioned, so now the song has a video like… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2013

Earlier this year, New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica wrote a piece about pop's Summer Of Smooth, about how many of this year's big warm-weather crossover hits were soft and breezy and immaculately produced and comforting pieces of throwbacky, slick pseudo-R&B. Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" drove the narrative, but it also encompassed Bruno… More »

Yuck – “Lose My Breath” Video

Yuck recovered from losing their frontman earlier this year by bouncing back quickly with a new and fantastic sophomore album. Now they've released the video for "Lose My Breath," which comes with an epilepsy trigger warning. It's well advised because the video is a jittery, flashing collection of visuals that goes nicely with the track. More »

Stream Yuck Glow & Behold

It's been a tumultuous year for the young British indie-fuzz darlings Yuck, who are essentially a different band now that frontman Daniel Blumberg has left them and gone on to do his own thing as Hebronix. But the band isn't just continuing on without Blumberg. With guitarist Max Bloom stepping to the front, they've thrived,… More »

Yuck – “Memorial Fields”

Yuck's forthcoming Glow & Behold is the indie shoegaze band's second album and first without Daniel Blumberg. Following "Middle Sea" and "Rebirth" -- both great songs -- we've now got an early listen to "Memorial Fields," a starry ballad with some pretty trumpet flourishes. Yuck 2.0 is shaping up very nicely! Take a… More »

Yuck – “Middle Sea” Video

The newly frontman-free British fuzz-rockers Yuck are about to release Glow & Behold, their second album and their first since former leader Daniel Blumberg flew the coop, and now they've got a video for their gorgeously bleary recent single "Middle Sea." In the clip, hirsute Yuck drummer Jonny Rogoff plays a competitive, emotional… More »

Watch Yuck Cover New Order’s “Age Of Consent”

Frontman Daniel Blumberg quit the British fuzz-rock band Yuck earlier this year, but the band has soldiered on without him, and they might be even better now that he's gone. The band's new album Glow & Behold is on the way, and the two new songs we've heard from it, "Rebirth" and "More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week we heard two major rap releases from each primary coastal city: Earl Sweatshirt's Doris representing L.A., and New York showing up via A$AP Ferg's Trap Lord, but the mainstay of the rap conversation was Kendrick Lamar claiming territory over both on Big Sean's "Control." That certainly made the cut this week,… More »

Yuck – “Middle Sea”

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,… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week saw a of new tunes from heavy-hitters (Beck with guest Kim Gordon), comeback cuts from old favorites (the Dismemberment Plan, Mazzy Star), and an odd cocktail of indie rock and rap (Black Noi$e's remix of Unknown Mortal Orchestra with Killer Mike and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire). What reeled us i… More »

Yuck – “Rebirth”

The young '90s-indie-riffing British fuzz-rock band Yuck lost frontman Daniel Blumberg to the solo project Hebronix earlier this year, but they're soldiering on as a trio and getting ready to drop the follow-up to 2011's self-titled debut on us. And this morning, they're sharing their new lineup's first single. The song, pointedly enough, i… More »

Hebronix – “Viral” Video

English trad-indie revivalists Yuck publicly parted ways with frontman Daniel Blumberg in mid-April, and less than 10 days later, Blumberg's new solo project, Hebronix, released its excellent first single, "Unreal." It remains to be seen what will be delivered by Yuck -- who will indeed carry on sans Blumberg -- but either way,… More »

Hebronix (Ex-Yuck) – “Unreal”

Just last week, we learned that Yuck, the great young fuzzed-out '90s-reviving British indie band, had lost frontman Daniel Blumberg, and that the group was recording a sophomore album without him. In their statement, the band mentioned that Blumberg had left to "focus on other things," and today, we learn what at least one… More »

Frontman Daniel Blumberg Leaves Yuck

England's Yuck put out one of my favorite albums of 2011 (they were named one of our Best New Bands that year, too). As much as I loved that album, though, I wondered (and continue to wonder) how they'd follow it up: It was such a perfect synthesis of '90s indie-rock influences that it… More »

Parakeet – “Darumasanga” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Yuck bassist Mariko Doi has been slowly releasing work from her solo project Parakeet since the beginning of 2012, which culminated in the Shonen Hearts EP, released in October. "Darumasanga" is the EP's closing track, and today we've got a video for it. Directed, shot, and edited by video duo -- and Doi's former… More »
