Biography

Hailing from Austin, Texas, YKCC is credited with bringing intelligence, melodic grace, and emotional depth to a rock scene more often marked by macho posturing and overpowering volume.
The quartet rose to prominence in 2008 with revised sound by adding Michael Tucker (making them a four piece), which launched the band to great popularity in Austin. While not as well-known because they basically formed in September 2008 have garnered overwhelming critical plaudits in the Austin local scene and respect from several musicians for songs that lament the dream-like spacey pace of modern life and humanity's attendant loss of attention, while they champion the consoling and healing powers of indie pop-rock.
YKCC’s creative mainstay Michelle Jones and Andy Kaminski formed the band with drummer Richard Carta in April of 2008. Although, they were known for awhile as a trio, they worked in new types until they felt they had a fit. This is when in September Michael Tucker joined the band permanently to play bass. The group developed their music in the well-known clubs of Austin, where too much of artistic worth saturates.
YKCC ‘s 2009 recording debut, Deer in Headlights, is a five-track EP whose title effectively sums up the effect therein. The pervasive synth lo-fi slacker-rock approach resembles that of another popular cult band from Modesto: Grandaddy. On Deer in Headlights, YKCC established their penchant for combining electric guitars with an array of distinctive, cheap keyboards on many tracks, but the disc also boasts some of the group's hardest-rocking songs--"Your Suffer Egos" and "These Things"--which recall such college-rock favorites as Built to Spill and Sonic Youth. In general, though, Deer in Headlights is an embryonic work that offers only faint hints of YKCC’s potential.
Since the release, the new EP has topped the charts locally first week finishing #20 of the top 50 charts. And #8 out of 10 for a featured spot in the Austin Chronicle.

Lyrics

You Suffer Egos

Written By: Andy Kaminski/YKCC

You got some nerve to talk
Before you think about those things you said
Is there a ring above your head or so you think
My dear you fooling no one here
Take a good look at yourself
But you cant b/c you don’t see anything, you disappear
Now you twisted random ways all around it
And turned this on yourself again
Your suffer egos you generate
We got no time for all these fakes

Allie Can't Talk

Written By: Andy Kaminski/YKCC

Allie will you pick up your phone
I know you’re sad and alone
Don’t try to fade your way out
Allie did you take it all in
We’re trying to save you again
Darkness just fills us within
Allie do know what you did
You drove it right in the skid
And all that’s left is a mark
Did you realize?
We failed to compromise
Did you realize?
The truth inside your eyes
Allie how long can tracks hold
How long till all veins just fold
She wants a another chance
Allie I side with you love
Just climb the wings of a dove
And keep your head off the ground
Allie took me up in her arms
Faded I had no response
I’m just a wasted dimes worth
Did you realize?
We failed to compromise
Did you realize?
The truth inside your eyes
Allie will you pick up your phone
I know you’re sad and alone
Don’t try to fade your way out

Seriously?

Can you find some place so far away
To drink your views away and get your head straight
I figure all we know, we really can’t show
Our kind is a clever mess we fail to regulate
So why do you persist on trying to keep us down
When everything is something you like to bitch about
And why do you consist on following me around
Dude you’re being so crass, do you think that’s cool
Everything you think you are is full of shit someway
I realized all you are, is so redundant and farce
Good luck with that , I hope it works for you
So why do you persist on trying to keep us down
When everything is something you like to bitch about
And why do you consist on following me around

These Things

Written By: YKCC

Everything is falling apart,
That’s mostly how things are,
It’s the way it spreads, these things,
These things!
Are you going to make it by dawn?
You kept yourself up too long,
Now the light is catching up
What will you do?
I caught you alone in my hiding place
You took off and ran through my bedroom door
I found you a month later around my neighborhood
And you acted like you never knew we would
You said without things you’re lost
These things they have a cost
You’ll get by somehow, these things
These things!
Are you going to make it by dawn?
You kept yourself up too long,
Now the light is catching up
What will you do?
I caught you alone in my hiding place
You took off and ran through my bedroom door
I found you a month later around my neighborhood
And you acted like you never knew we would
