Label: FAT POSSUM
This promising debut calls to mind an era when Yuck's members were still yuckin' up diapers. The band have homed in on early '90s college radio as a reference point, balancing elements from shoegaze haze to lo-fi guitar to smooth-sailin' dream pop. Some of the album rocks; some of it rolls: Tracks like "Get Away" and "Holing Out" buzz with the guitar assaults of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.; others such as "Shook Down," "Suicide Policeman" and "Stutter" simmer with the girl-guy harmonies and melodic ease of Yo La Tengo. This is '90s revival at its freshest. This edition includes six b-sides.
