Lead singer Daniel Blumberg left Yuck after just one album. The group’s self-titled 2011 debut was a noisy burst of fun, and the U.K. band’s tunes conjured thoughts of the mid-’90s alt rock a la Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Teenage Fanclub, and so on. Guitarist Max Bloom now fronts Yuck, and on Mon., Feb. 10, he’ll be joined by guitarist Ed Hayes, drummer Jonny Rogoff, and bassist Mariko Doi. The band’s sophomore album, Glow & Behold, released last fall, maintains Yuck’s signature kinetic vibe — it mellows things a bit while upping the band’s melodic leanings.
