The Music Geek Track of the Week: “Chew”
by Matt Grosinger on April 13, 2012
I have had a pretty dull week of eating (despising) Matzoh, so on a very personal level, I thought “Chew” by Yuck was the most appropriate track of the for this enthralling second week of April. Did that sound snippy? Sorry. It is probably because I haven’t had a legitimate bowel movement in a while. Also I am jealous of Becca, who is currently at Coachella enjoying four days in the sun, seeing and interviewing some pretty amazing artists (we will have some cool posts coming your way after this weekend). But it’s okay, because I am seeing Chris tonight in Chicago!! Woo!! Eat it, Coachella!
Wait, what was I talking about? Oh right, music. So this track from Yuck hews to the sort of vintage 90s sound that they established for themselves on their debut LP. If my discussion last year with frontman Daniel Blumberg taught me anything about Yuck, it is that there is always a really catchy guitar hook to be made. “Chew” is no exception to this rule.
