London band Yuck's buzzworthy 2011 tour included a stop at SXSW, where they played the NPR Music showcase and marked the release of their debut album. They returned with their second album, Glow & Behold, in October. In the interim, former lead singer Daniel Blumberg left the band, opening the door for guitarist Max Bloom to take over the role — something he says was natural to do. Bloom, along with bassist Mariko Doi, drummer Jonny Rogoff, and guitarist Ed Hayes, played this version of "Middle Sea" for an opbmusic session.
