Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness

Yak is pretty much the epitome of the indie power-rock trio. From riffs that approach The Black Keys levels of addictiveness to noisy genre-defying jams that reminisce a higher paced Spiritualized, their second album Pursuit of Momentary Happiness has exactly what you’d expect of a band living in their car with nothing but their Big Muff pedals to keep them warm.


Jack White’s Third Man Records here releases No, an EP by new band Yak. These three songs are grinding psych-rock thrusts, using plenty of fuzz on all the guitars, and the vocals, on some organ, and probably on the drums too. Produced by Steve Mackey of Pulp, this 7” EP has a locked groove at the end as an extra treat.

Alas Salvation

With a couple of singles on Fat Possum and an EP on Third Person records, riot inducing noise-rock trio Yak turn to Octopus for their Debut album Alas salvation. With elements of Death from above 1979 and squealing of Lightning Bolt in a noisy garage band package. Catchy and sweaty. Is there anything better?

Hungry Heart / Something On Your Mind

Have you ever seen a large bovine make music? Have you ever had yak’s milk? Here’s hoping their music is a bit tastier, Yak finally releasing a haunting subterranean 7” for all you cow lovers. Hungry Heart and flipside Something on Your Mind will hopefully prove to be the first of many excellent 7 and 12”s to come.

Plastic People

The very first EP from Yak, a young London crew making songs out of organ, yelping, and energy-frenzy. Just look at the cover for a sense of the sound: it’s all kicking off round here. The EP, Plastic People, is made up of three tracks and seven inches of vinyl, and is released by Fat Possum Records.
