vinyl records and the new york knicks

This is the UK band Yuck’s 2011 self-titled debut. I purchased this in a deluxe edition from Other Music in NYC. I must say that Fat Possum did a tremendous job with this and the effort put forth should be de rigeur for contemporary vinyl releases. First of all the record has great sound all around. The vinyl is heavyweight and quiet. Even the reverb-y guitars sound clean with no static or compression at all. There is a second disc of b-sides and an unreleased track. The heavyweight gatefold sleeve is of great quality and there is code for the digital download of the album (bonus tracks not included). Most reviews compare them to Dinosaur Jr. but I’d say they are a lot closer to old Superchunk. If you are a fan of that or the new trend of lo-fi “nu-gaze” I’d highly recommend checking them out.
