Uh-huh Baby Yeah! - “Trash Talk - EP” (Little Heart Records)
Review by David McNeill (@fluxdavidflow)
Whoever said rock and roll was dead has obviously never heard of Jeffersonville, Indiana’s very own Uh-huh Baby Yeah! “Trash Talk” is best described as, hard, fast, kind of aggressive, and full of rock.
The opening track, ‘Dances With Wolves” starts with the sounds of a lively party that then enters immediately into the classic rock and roll sounds you’ll hear the rest of the album: distorted guitar riffs, random screams and sudden dance rock breaks.
But you can’t forget the nearly perfected clean vocals of lead singer Kevin Fletcher. Those are fully displayed the entire EP with his entire range showcased to it’s fullest with the closing song “Ocean Of You”, which in ways could be compared to classic Jimmy Eat World song or 2, but with completely it’s own feel.
The EP’s second track, “Whores Will Be Whores”, showcases where most rock bands now a days are doing it wrong. It’s very well crafted. Good dark lyrics, great music, well placed “fuck”s, a few nasty grungy well placed screams, a great guitar solo, oh and it’s about someone being a total whore. Who doesn’t love a song like that?
Track 3, “Dead Friends”, is the perfect zombie apocalypse song. “All my friends are dead” = zombies. At least, I think so….but anyways, this track is a poppy-er rock song, still showcasing the bands amazing ability to play their music perfectly.
It’s very hard to place these guys into one genre as they’ve perfected at least 3 different genres on this EP. I will say, if you’re in to old school, straight up, dirty rock and roll, this is the perfect album for you. Uh-huh Baby Yeah! completely proved rock and roll never needed saving, it was perfectly alive in Southern Indiana.
