Band of the Week: Yogurt Smoothness


Welcome to Orlando Weekly's "Band of the Week." Every week, we highlight one of our favorite local bands. This week, we're pleased to bring you Yogurt Smoothness.

Yogurt Smoothness is playing Will's Pub on Jan. 31 with Boytoy.

Just the facts:

When did the band form?
We've been around since 2007, somehow.

Dan (guitar, vocals) and Brian (drums)

Currently available releases:

Describe your sound in five words:
Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge

Five questions:

What has been your most memorable show so far?
Opening for Jucifer in Jacksonville. Their speaker wall was so intense, the cops had to come and shut it down. All the nearby clubs called in to complain.

Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?
The Welzeins. They've got a real tuff sound.

What description gets used for your band that you would most
like to correct people on? Why?
Black Keys/White Stripes comparisons. It means they're listening with their eyes; we sound more like The Melvins in-between bassists.

What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What's your least favorite? Why?
Best: Uncle Lou's.
Worst: Uncle Lou's.

Any big news to share?
We're currently tracking two EPs at two different studios that will be released this year, and we'll hopefully/eventually finish our very overdue full-length by the end of the year.
