This surprise could possibly be my favorite album so far this year. Yuck's self titled album is full of staticky, distorted guitars, and superb hooks. Often compared to 90's alt rock bands such as Dinosaur Jr and Pavement, Yuck has created an excellent warm weather anthem, perfect for blasting in your car with every window down. "Get Away" is one of the top five best songs I've heard this year, with a killer chorus drenched in distortion both in the guitars and vocals. Though many of the indie records I've heard this year haven't lasted too long, this record has held up over the past two months while continuing to grow in impact to me. In fact, I can see this record ending up in my top five, and will definitely be top two in my first quarter report, due by the end of March. But for now, you can listen to Yuck on Myspace here.
