Yuck

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Tady of The Beaver County Times.

In case you missed it here's what he played (with commentary by Scott):

Yuck, “Chew” - Exhilarating U.K. band specializing in shoe-gazing guitar-rock, which like this new single, has a proper balance between sludgy and spacey. Not sure what they’re getting at with a chorus that says, “We chew it together.” Probably doesn’t matter.

2:54, “You’re Early” - And you’re early if you get hip now to this British duo’s brooding, atmospheric debut single. They’re two sisters, Colette and Hannah Thurlow, who have toured with the aforementioned Yuck and Melissa Auf de Maur of Hole. I understand why this song makes Cindy Howes recall her gothic days :)

2:54 Scott Tady The 9:13 Buzz Yuck

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Tady of The Beaver County Times.

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott:

The Decemberists, "Rox in the Box" - The first truly great album of 2011, "The King is Dead" from The Decemberists, is more jangly and twangy than 2008's "The Hazards of Love," with notable contributions from R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and Americana artist Gillian Welch. Let's face it: The Decemberists' Colin Meloy would sound great singing the instructions on a 1040EZ form. But he really shines on this solid material, including my favorite track, "Rox in the Box," the folkiest one on the album.

Yuck, "Holing Out" - Just when you thought rock had exhausted its supply of creative band names, along comes Yuck. Luckily, Yuck doesn't literally live up to its name, offering an engaging brand of Sonic Youth-ish, fuzzy guitar, lo-fi garage rock. Band members hail from New Jersey, London and Hiroshima... that pretty much covers it! Their self-titled, self-produced debut will be released by the Fat Possum label on Feb. 15. Get hip to Yuck now.
