The Yolks – Wandering 7″

a1: Wandering
a2: Don’t Blame Me
b1: Mob City Hustle (instrumental)

Label: Bachelor Records
Buy: Rocket Reducer
Listen: Myspace

This is the second single from Chicago’s The Yolks, who are gaining some momentum after they broke onto the scene with their self-released single “Introducing…” last year (which they sold out almost all on their own; Criminal IQ repressed it, and you can also get it at Rocket Reducer – HIGHLY recommended). This single isn’t far off stylistically, maintaining their Nuggets inspired early 60’s garage sound that just works so nicely, though the recording here seems a lot less lo-fi than the first single.

“Wandering” continues establishing the greatness of this band, sounding kind of like a Buddy Holly single (complete with “bom bom bom” backups). Absolutely essential.
