Yuck is a fairly new band, so don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them. They put out a sometimes gross and totally NSFW video late last year that garnered a dose of love from some quarters (including mine). They’ve been called a “shoegazey Sonic Youth,” and if you enjoy 90s alternative rock, you may very well dig Yuck. I do.
But the song that has been echoing around in my mind lately is a departure from that sound. It’s a haunting piano piece — a cover of a song called “Despite Everything” by Porcelain Raft — and I just can’t get enough of it.
“I think we’re about to be dropped in the middle of the ocean/Hope you know how to swim and to hold your breath deep …”
For more Yuck, take a gander at their Myspace page.
