Album Review: Milk Maid - 'Yucca'
Marrying lo-fi brilliance and buoyant skuzz
But if that sounds like a slight against this album, then you’ve got us all wrong. Full of distortion-drenched vocals and slacker guitar lines, ‘Yucca’ is a brilliantly messy thing. Sitting between the lo-fi haze of Woods and the buoyant bounce of Black Lips, Milk Maid do scuzzy rackets (‘Such Fun’), ’60s sweetness (‘Dead Wrong’) and reverb-ridden downers (‘Back Of Your Knees’) with equal aplomb.
