Daniel Blumberg se separa de Yuck La banda indie rock británica Yuck se está preparando para regresar 'en grande' este 2013, pero lo harán sin el vocalista Daniel Blumberg .

Los miembros restantes de Yuck - Max Bloom , Mariko Doi , Jonny Rogoff [...]
After the refreshing tastes of "Canyon" & the silky smooth, 80's inspired "Running" , our favourite Brazilian wunderkids We Are Pirates have released their debut EP 'Kids Practice'. continue reading >>
Here is another band that may not be high on the long list of Coachella acts but is definitely worth getting to know. Yuck released their self-titled debut album in 2011 with some great reviews and landed on many “Best of” lists. They have been compared to a lot of classic bands such as Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and even Pavement. But instead of comparing them to bands that Yuck may sound like we would rather mention that their sound does reflect a 90’s era influence. They played a couple small [...]
(Originally posted on Donewaiting.com ) The biggest struggle when putting together this list is how to rank the albums. What exactly is the difference between a #1 and a #2 album? Without doubt, Viva Brother's "Darling Buds of May" was the song I listened to the most in 2011 and the album it comes from is pretty damn good. But is it my favorite album as a whole? The Damnwells have consistently put out great material and I'm sure I listened to No One Listens to the Band Anymore more, front [...]
This year in music has been quite impressive. While 2010 gave us clear-cut, stand alone winners, it was much harder to determine which album was Top Ten worthy, let alone the best of 2011. Most sites have published their lists already, and while many albums appear on the same lists, the top ten varies greatly from list to list. Don't expect us to be any different.

100. Jim Woodring. This year the artist constructed a seven-foot-long fountain pen that even Lloyd Dobler would be proud to own.

11. Cold Cave - "Confetti" At one point the Cold Cave record was possibly my favorite of the year. It just got so many things right at the perfect time: we were due for a reexamination of 902s wide-eyed teenage apocalyptic romanticism via some kind of self-conscious, unsubtle goth/industrial/synthpop revival. Heavy monosynth moongazing that's simultaneously tongue-in-cheek hilarious and dead-fucking-serious. I'm not sure everyone got the high-wire act that Cold Cave was going for here. 12. Purity Ring - "Lofticries" This is the track that [...]
The 44 page collection is now available in three different packages.
A "Best of Indie Rock" list, by definition, will be an eclectic bunch. And the process of culling through what the genre had to offer is a task this year -- the indie world has had a banner 2011. A "Best of Indie Rock" list, by definition, will be an eclectic bunch. The term, itself -- "indie rock" -- serves as a catch-all, a way to scoop up an enormous collection of acts who eschew, either by choice or by default, major labels and the big business dealings of the music industry that accompany them. Like last year, this [...]
The 90s were great. Well, they may have been. I was relatively young during that time, so I really only remember the music, movies, and TV shows, but those things were great. It may be unfair, but Yuck is an English band that has been lumped in with a group of 90s revival bands. Based on their debut self-titled album, one can quickly notice the similarities to Dinosaur Jr (when the tambourine came in the first time I heard "Get Away", I thought I might be listening to a deluxe edition of [...]
Yuck, who hails from London, played two nights in a row this week at The Independent in San Francisco. They remind me of several 90s bands, many from Boston, and I wouldn't be surprised if they've never heard of any of them. The Blake Babies (with Juliana Hatfield), Fuzzy and a non Boston band, Elastica. Here is a track by Yuck called "Get Away". In the mid-90s I caught this band called Fuzzy locally. It has a similar vibe and the guitars sound very similar. Listen to [...]

Photo via Yuck's Facebook page The name ironically fits; the bands noisy, chaotic sound may take some time to adjust to, but if you are fans of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr., then Yuck may just be right up your alley. Yuck carefully crafts their noise, using it sporadically to move a song in a certain direction. But, don't let the distorted guitars and vocals fool you; underneath the beautifully chaotic noise, is a quintet that are masters at creating infectious, melodic hooks. Channeling in some of Thurston Moore's spine-tingling energy, frontman Daniel Blumberg's [...]
Filed under: The Hit List Choosing the 25 best songs of 2011 so far was quite the task. Debates got heated, e-mail chains devolved into name-calling, staffer integrity was questioned and "final" versions of the list ended [...]
Friday night's show at Black Cat with Yuck and Tame Impala is SOLD OUT, but I have two tickets I'd like to give some lucky person. E-mail me with the subject "Get Away" (5actsblog at gmail dot com) and I'll select someone at random at 11:00 am ET on the morning of the show.
