Thud – ‘Blank’

thud-floret-artwork

There’s a constant bevy of brilliant noise coming out of Asia, and whilst Japan’s influence immediately springs to mind, China ain’t doing bad either! Case in point, Hong Kong five piece Thud, who recently released their debut EP ‘Floret‘ via Records for Children. The five track collection features a remix by Max Bloom (of Yuck), whom they toured with earlier in the year. ‘Floret’ is predominately a new wave/dream pop collection that’s generous with melody and crisp production. The 80s-tinged jangle popper ‘Blank’ is a favourite…

Yuck – ‘Athena’

YUCK - 'SOUTHERN SKIES'

British rock act Yuck have gone a ‘lil bit gazey! The four piece have delivered a new single called ‘Athena’, taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Southern Skies’ (due this Spring). It’s a more lush and layered sound than we’ve heard from Yuck before. The new material comes just months after their second album ‘Glow And Behold‘.

Yuck – ‘Rebirth’

YUCK - 'REBIRTH'

Yuck release the first single ‘Rebirth’ (free download) from their forthcoming sophomore album! The London-based fuzz rockers are now operating as a trio following the departure of lead singer Daniel Blumberg in April. Surprisingly, Yuck are still sounding solid – rebirth indeed! Clearly it was not a one man show. No word on an album release date as yet. Meanwhile, check out Daniel Blumberg’s solo project Hebronix (out now through ATP Recordings).

Yuck – ‘Chew’

British rock outfit Yuck have returned with the new single ‘Chew’. The 90s flavoured rock tune was streamed more than 20,000 times in less than 24 hours at Soundcloud. The down side is, many are making comparisons with Smashing Pumpkins 1992 B-side ‘Plume’. The introduction is particularly telling, decide for yourself below!
