New Yuck - "Cousin Corona", Releasing Deluxe Edition LP


One of our favorite new acts of the year — U.K. based 90s college rock dwellers Yuck — have received a great deal of support after dropping their debut eponymous LP earlier this year. The band has done a great job staying in the spotlight since then, releasing album highlights “Get Away” and “Shook Down” as 7” singles and backing them with B-sides as enjoyable as “Milkshake” and “Doctors In My Bed”.

The outfit lead by Daniel Blumberg (who just released his debut solo record under the moniker Oupa) has now announced that their label Fat Possum will be re-releasing their Yuck LP as a double disk deluxe edition, which will feature six B-sides, some of which we've heard and some of which are brand spankin new, like recently surfaced “Cousin Corona.” It's also interesting to note that Blumberg's press release was addressed to Barack Obama. Check out “Cousin Corona” below; Yuck deluxe edition is out October 11th.

Yuck - "Cousin Corona"

Here is the press release:

Dear Barack Obama,

When we were writing the songs that would become the Yuck album we were just writing songs rather than an album. We put the tracklisting together on a whim, and even on the day of mastering we were adding tracks and changing things around. Sometimes it’s felt strange that songs like “Milkshake” and “Soothe Me” aren’t on there. We like playing “Milkshake” live, and “The Base Of A Dream is Empty,” that one’s nice, and Jonny loves “Cousin Corona.” Anyways, Fat Possum said we could make a double disk edition if we wanted, so now we have a double disk coming out. Thanks for Fat Possum and for the triple disk that is now coming out Oct. 11.

Yours sincerely,
Daniel Blumberg and Yuck


Dear Barack Obama,
I love it. I think we are only putting out 2 CDs and not 3.
