At One Thirty BPM, we don’t like simply reprinting press releases, unless they are too good not to share, which is the case of the Yuck press release. Here it is:
Dear Barack Obama,
When we were writing the songs that would become the Yuck album we were just writing songs rather than an album. We put the tracklisting together on a whim, and even on the day of mastering we were adding tracks and changing things around. Sometimes it’s felt strange that songs like “Milkshake” and “Soothe Me” aren’t on there. We like playing “Milkshake” live, and “The Base Of A Dream is Empty,” that one’s nice, and Jonny loves “Cousin Corona.” Anyways, Fat Possum said we could make a double disk edition if we wanted, so now we have a double disk coming out. Thanks for Fat Possum and for the triple disk that is now coming out Oct. 11.
Daniel Blumberg and Yuck
Dear Barack Obama,
I love it. I think we are only putting out 2 CDs and not 3.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
We talk with Israeli rockers Vaadat Charigim about some of their favorite records.
