Yuck

"I'm watching YUCK on stage for the second time this week at only their third gig.... YUCK's music is beguilingly interior, evoking inner monologues and sideways glances through eyelashes framed by burning cheeks. Vocals weave through a haze of reverb and feedback arches through frisson-filled dusky melodies. There are moments of angst in songs The Wall and Get Away (the one with the heartbreaker chorus) but it's ultimately sweetly uplifting, none more so than "Georgia," their forthcoming single on Transparent that feels like a forgotten anthem. Grunge would be an easy reference to make, but a lazy one too. Sure, you can spot-call the elements but the underlying feeling isn't apathy. This isn't a 90s revival; YUCK are the sound of growing up. [Dummy Mag, Feb. 2010]
London group Yuck have been leaking a steady stream of demos, singles and, most recently, an EP titled Weakend, since before their live debut at the beginning of 2010. Their tour schedule includes UK shows through the fall, and though they've yet to make it stateside, that will change soon (stay tuned).

"Daughter" and "Automatic," two songs from the sold-out limited-edition cassette EP Weakend, are posted above. A previous single "Georgia," which came out on a split 7-inch on Transparent, and bedroom recording "Sunday" are both above as well.

Videos for all three of those, plus one for Weakend's title-track, are posted below...

DOWNLOAD: Delta Spirit - Bushwick Blues (MP3)

Delta Spirit

The Delta Spirit's second record, History From Below, came out earlier in June on Rounder Records. If you order it at Amazon, you get an exclusive bonus track.

That album's "Bushwick Blues" (which you can get above) was debuted here in May...and now there's video to accompany the impassioned lost-love tune. Though there's no audience at the session, recorded at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, CA, singer Matt Vazquez has no problem throwing himself into the song's romantic vortex. Somewhere around the two-minute mark the band seems to collectively fixate on the inevitability of the words, recharging for the final heartrending thrust a minute later.

The band has a pair of NYC shows coming up, at Bowery Ballroom on June 30th and Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 1st, both with Ezra Furman & the Harpoons and The Romany Rye. The first night of that is sold out but tickets for the second at MHOW are on sale.

Those shows are part of a larger tour for the band that continues all the way to California. All tour dates and the video are below...

DA Dylan

The National's High Violet came out Tuesday. They also used that occassion to release a video for the song "Bloodbuzz Ohio." That clip, which features Matt Berninger, his infamous glass of wine, and documentarian D.A. Pennebaker as a bartender, is posted below.

The band's High Violet Annex events kicked off last night with a low key few hours of DJing from members of Blonde Redhead and a ticket contest for Saturday's BAM show. Contests like that will be happening each day at the space which is next to Other Music. Tonight, Wednesday, there's also a full lineup of bands playing. Lineups for the rest of the nights still TBA.

Speaking of D.A. Pennebaker, he'll be directing a live webcast of the BAM show on YouTube Saturday night. And speaking of ticket contests for the show, we also have two pairs to give away courtesy of the show's sponsor, Zync. Contest details, with the above-mentioned video and a Pennebaker/Dylan (both pictured above) rehash to promote the show, below...
