We adore New Order, so when this little gem of a cover from London indie rockers Yuck came our way, we couldn’t have been more pleased.

Captured during a live recording session at the legendary RAK Studios in Northwest London, Yuck’s interpretation of the Manchester band’s 1983 cult favorite – as originally heard on their impeccable Power, Corruption & Lies LP — is filmed in 360-style. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself swirling around wherever you are when you watch. Vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom sounds remarkably akin to Bernard Sumner, too, which leaves us swooning, of course. Plus, get a glimpse at the band’s new guitarist Ed Hayes.

If you want more, Yuck is set to release their sophomore album, Glow & Behold, via Fat Possum on October 1. And their “Age of Consent” bit will appear as the B-side to the “Middle Sea” seven-inch single.

Catch ’em at CMJ, kicking off the week of October 16!

‘Against Nature’ Boutique on Chrystie Street Shutters After 6 Years

Fashion flight hits Chrystie Street. Against Nature, the men’s boutique that debuted back in 2010, shuttered this week. It rolled up and consolidated with the flagship store on Christopher Street. Not entirely unexpected. A few weeks ago, the Lee & Associates brokerage installed an enormous leasing banner on the facade. What we often call tombstone […]

How about this New Essex Street Funhouse?

In the years since its sale, 3 Essex Street has remained remarkably intact. No demolition. No changing hands. No real activity. Until this week, when the tenement became a funhouse of sorts. In a display more befitting Halloween than Valentine’s Day, each of the upper windows dons a ghoulish mask. Topping it off is a […]

Le Pain Quotidien just planted another flag downtown. The Belgian-style bakery is poised to open its umpteenth city location in the kink of Bleecker Street, where American Apparel previously outfitted NYU students. Now it’ll fatten them up. The teaser signage was recently scraped away to reveal the bi-level innards. No word just yet on opening […]

Phase 2 of Essex Crossing will Break Ground in June with More Affordable Housing

Essex Crossing is firing on all burners. Full throttle. Two of the four new buildings are topped out, with the balance reaching skyward each day; the 24-story “Gateway” (Site 2) and 242 Broome Street condos (Site 1) are currently sporting some major heft. But this is a rolling process, and, recent progress notwithstanding, sights are […]
