Stream Wicked New Tune From Hunck Here!

In 1992, Nirvana and Teenage Fanclub were booming out of the hip kids' stereos on both sides of the Atlantic. Nirvana, a bunch of Americans, were drawing inspiration from U.K. bands like The Raincoats and The Vaselines. Teenage Fanclub, a bunch of Scots, were drawing inspiration from American legends Big Star and Neil Young.

If somehow those two acts had pooled their resources and influences, the glorious result would be this cut by Hunck.

Not to confused with the fantastic band from the 1990s (HUNK), this Hunck is a sort of side project. Frederik Tyson-Brown is in MT. Thomas Wykes is in Parakeet (a side project of guys from Yuck and The History of Apple Pie).

This is "Toy Trucks" and it's alternately lovely and noisy. I like it quite a bit, especially on my headphones.
