Predatory Nashville band Yautja looks for new victims at Uncle Lou's Wednesday


Nashville crushers Yautja managed to bowl over heavy music heads with their debut last year, Songs of Descent. Blending the best of grindcore, stoner rock and thrash, it’s sensory overload and raucously blurs any expectation to obscure each song’s horizon, like trying to distinguish shades of black in the dark. Featuring members of Coliseum, Nameless Cults and Gnarwhal, Yautja is a distinct mutt thankfully not mussed up by defining lines in pedigree. The album’s mostly sold out (according to their Bandcamp, the cassettes and vinyl flew off shelves, and there are exactly three CDs remaining), so if by chance you see music merch, you should probably snag it. If you already did and dug this shock to the system, you should be stoked Yautja has new music coming out in October, a seven-song EP called Songs of Lament. Go crush on this welcome new force in person. 

Yautja with Ad Nauseum, Devalued, Gillian Carter | 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16 | Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, 1016 N. Mills Ave. | 407-898-0009 | $7
