Listen: Yuck – “Chew”; download single from Yuck side project, Parakeet

Yuck is trapped in the early ’90s. It’s as if their TVs only show vintage episodes of 120 Minutes, their local book store only carries issues of Alternative Press and CMJ from 1991, and the record store carries CDs and cassettes released between 1989 and 1993. After last year’s amazing self-titled homage to Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, Superchunk, Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub, etc., etc., they’ve now apparently moved to (or taken a slight diversion) to shoegazing bands like My Bloody Valentine with their new single, “Chew”.

Yuck bassist Mariko Doi has a side project called Parakeet that just posted a free track (“Tomorrow”) on Bandcamp.

    the new Yuck sounds more like a throw-away Built to Spill track. Not that that’s a bad thing.
