Yuko Yuko’s Elias Elgersma owes a lot to the internet. Not just his ’90s VHS tape album art, or his dozen-plus Bandcamp releases, but the fact that he managed to gain a fairly large following in Mexico before anyone in his native Holland really knew who he was. He’s since released two EPs on Mexico-based web labels Bad Pop and RVRB and now releases the third, Babes, on the French label Beko Disques.
Eight tracks of Glazin-era Jacuzzi Boys mixed with ’80s drum machine plastic-ness and woozy, co-ed harmonies. – CMJ
