Yuck burst onto the American music scene in 2011, on the strength of their debut release, a sound that drew comparisons to Dinosaur Jr among others, and a string of buzzworthy shows that year including ones at SXSW.
After founding member Daniel Blumberg left the band last year, Yuck announced a new record, Glow & Behold, which was released in the fall. On tour in the U.S., the trio of lead singer and guitarist Max Bloom, bassist Mariko Doi, and drummer Jonny Rogoff were joined by new guitarist Ed Hayes, and we caught up to the band the afternoon of their Portland show, to record this opbmusic session.
