It's a beautiful week to listen to Yucky Duster! We have a feeling that's gonna be true EVERY WEEK FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, but we've been playing their tape non-stop since we put it out on Friday. And you know what, I don't think we're the only ones. Cuz The Grey Estates made it their ALBUM OF THE WEEK! They said "Duster's Lament is like stepping onto a merry-go-round, with the off-kilter and engaging pop of Yucky Duster serving as your soundtrack. The four Brooklyn friends follow up their previously released full length with this release, 5-tracks of garage pop that epitomize the highs and lows of growing up and making it through each day... Even in the face of feeling like a total bummer, Yucky Duster finds a way to make it all seem okay - "I don't mean to get you down/I'm just having one of those years." If you can't bear to face the day or you need a reason to smile, the Brooklynites' merry-go-round is here to help you hide. All you need is the cotton candy." Read the rest of their review HERE.

The Current also reviewed Duster's Lament over the weekend, saying "Every song on the new EP has a line in it that is sure to make listeners smile... This offbeat humor, coupled with the group’s penchant for upbeat rhythms and sweet pop harmonies, seems to sprout right out of the head of Weezer’s “Blue Album.” Which reminds us! Make sure yr callin yr local college radio and tellin em you wanna hear more YUCKY DUSTER!

But THAT'S NOT ALL!! Mr. Anthony Fantano himself reviewed their last single "The Ropes" in his Best Tracks Of The Week round up (that makes two outta two singles!). You can watch that for yrself below. And afterwards, pick up a copy of Yucky Duster's new tape HERE!
