More Bay Area love from an Oakland band who sent their shit to me ages ago...but I am easily distracted. YI dish out snarky melodic sounds rooted in '90s guitar driven college/indie rock - probably not what I would typically go for, but there's something here that drew me in. Maybe it's the murky swarm of vocals that lurk under the blown out mix on 2010's At Home demo, or perhaps the smart and sharp approach and more angular guitars on 2011's Host Body (tracks that were put to wax earlier this year). Way more of a noisy post punk angle on the second release, but both are included here for your pleasure. I like pleasing.
