iTunes Editors’ Notes

Austin’s Yellow Fever are clearly involved in time travel. There is a certain something, a certain je ne sais quoi, beyond the sparse, restrained sounds of bands associated with the British post-punk/Rough Trade style of 1980 that separates Yellow Fever from other retro-inspired bands. From the detached cool of vocalist Jennifer Moore to the big, white spaces separating the plinking guitar and the rattling percussion, Yellow Fever has “it” —whatever it is — by the truck load. “Culver City” manages in its first 60 seconds — with three simple guitar notes and a thunking tom drum — to convey both impending doom and vulnerability with its empty-room tones and Moore’s wistful admonishment: “What she does to you, baby, is all messed up /What she does to you, baby, is all your fault.” Other tracks, like “Psychedelic,” “Donald,” and “Cats and Rats,” are slightly fuller-sounding (even with a single-note bass line) and more whimsical, with double-tracked vocals, lighter lyrics and occasional clanging guitar chords. Perhaps their coolest moment (among many), is their ode to Donovan.  Hmmm. Mellow … yellow fever?

Customer Reviews

The most underrated band of all time!

I shall keep this brief, YF has an amazing knack for pulling from some of the best unknown acts of the 70s and late 80s and creating truly distinct music. This band is the real deal and thank god the Vivian Girls were smart enough to put out this record for them. Subpop, Matador and Polyvinyl should be kicking themselves for never discovering the best band from ATX next to The American Analog Set.
