from Dan Loves Patti (1996, Tag)
Monday, February 1, 2010
Yum Yum was a short-lived indie-pop act which was largely the project of Chris Holmes, who had previously led the Chicago post-rock band Sabalon Glitz. He released only one album under the Yum Yum moniker, Dan Loves Patti on Tag Records in 1996. Much of the album falls into the chamber pop territory ala Cardinal, Trash Can Sinatras, or Belle & Sebastian. This track, "Apiary", however, showcases Holmes' incorporation of fuzzed indie rock guitars into his orchestral pop.
