♫♪  YYU - Karaoke

Since knocking us to our knees with 2012’s TIMETIMETIME&TIME, Chicago based musician YYU has kept a fairly low profile. Though, when talking about someone who performs underneath a sheet, that’s not such a surprising tidbit.

After releasing two free mixes, a couple EPs, as well as the excellent Room Music in the years following TIMETIMETIME&TIME, YYU is back at it with a full-length on Lillerne Tapes, entitled Karaoke. Consisting of bedroom footwork excursions, lusty slow burners, sample cut-ups, and sparse electronic jaunts, these lovely patchworked aural textures are lightly filled in from time to time with YYU’s signature airy, tear-inducing vocals. In other words, bliss is reel.

Unfortunately, all physical copies are sold out from Lillerne. Contact YYU for any remaining copies.

Btw, dibs on “Thunder Road” for karaoke this Sunday.
