BREAKING SOUNDS: The Yolks 'Introducing' 7" EP

posted Friday Aug 3rd, 2007

The Chicago three-piece known for their enkindling of 60s-style rave ups, The Yolks have self-released their debut four song 7" EP, Introducing The Yolks, this past week and is available directly from the band, or through Rocket Reducer Mailorder. This four song platter comes in a very limited pressing of 300 and is enhanced with a risky design that includes silk screened labels, but with a such an analeptic platter as this, you won't be falling sleep at the needle anyway, so quit worrying about your precious stylus and spill your beer already! The Yolks' songs filter nostalgia through a sieve of modern audacity that conjures the same brilliant approach to the “good enough” production values that made bands like Supercharger and The Mummies so refreshing in the 90s. Though their sound is generally more jaunty than the latter bands, they pull it off with the sort of underhanded and insolent attitude that enthralls the ladies, and makes waking up on a cold kitchen floor with a bottle top stuck to your face a respectable occurrence. In the opening track, “I Do What I Do” which can be heard HERE, their cocksure approach to song writing is evident as they proclaim “You don't have to hold my hand / I don't have to be your man...” I'll bet she called him everyday after that, and we should all take note. Pick this up HERE before you're sorry you didn't, and don't miss The Yolks along with a great VoT-sanctioned Summertime lineup next week at Cals' Fest Party outside in Chicago's South Loop for a guaranteed hell of a good time.
