Yuck - "Shook Down"

Yuck's self-titled debut came out just a little over a year ago. It made my Pazz & Jop ballot, which prompted a colleague to comment, "I'd rather just listen to Dinosaur Jr." To which I'll respond with a snippet of Robert Christgau's assessment of them: "These four Brits are compared to so many '80s-'90s bands you should figure they don't sound much like any of them." He then goes on to compare them to Sleigh Bells and Best Coast, two bands I really love. Here's "Shook Down," which doesn't sound all that much like any of those aforementioned groups.
