New indie releases: Yuck leads the pack
There are a slew of new releases today. My top pick is the debut album by Yuck.
When I think of ’80s music, I think of a lot of different styles. Yuck’s guitars remind of mid- to late ’80s Dinosaur Jr. and maybe a little bit of My Bloody Valentine. Give a listen to the song, Holing Out, posted below. It’s not groundbreaking but it’s very good stuff. I highly recommend the album.
Fans of the Vivian Girls can indulge in two spinoff bands. La Sera is Katy Goodman’s side project. That self-titled release is out today. The Babies, a collaboration with Vivian Girl Cassie Ramone and Woods bassist Kevin Morby, also released its first album. I like both offerings from these side projects.
Among the other notable releases: Mogwai’s Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. See my post from last week.
