EDITORS’ NOTES

Yuck’s first album unloaded fuzz-caked indie rock and their second drifted through dreamy alt-pop; on their third, the quartet bring both styles under one roof. “Hold Me Closer” and “Cannonball” are disheveled slacker jams built from chunky riffs, New Wave moxie, and heavily distorted vocals. Their rambunctiousness is countered by the entrancing melancholy of “Like a Moth” and “As I Walk Away,” each featuring fragile harmonies wrapped around warm guitar jangle. Collapsing the two styles in on each other, album finale “Yr Face” manages to shapeshift between crunchy static and shoegaze-style ethereality.
