Album Review: Yes Yes A Thousand Times Yes - 'Supertinyinfinitedans'

Emo/math rock band Yes Yes A Thousand Times Yes are back with their deeply immersive sophomore LP, Supertinyinfinitedans.



Tucked somewhere lovingly in between modern punk, math, and nostalgic emo bliss, supertinyinfinitedans have always created a world that takes us back through the glory days of emo infancy. Since their 2016 debut EP, Broken World Media, Yes Yes A Thousand Times Yes has taken a fresh approach to musical time travel, melody, and vocal dissonance, with their new sophomore LP, Supertinyinfinitedans.


Supertinyinfinitedans is more than just a step back through time using vocals and instrumentals energies to take listeners there. It's a powerful depiction of hope in a difficult time.

From the beginning, infusions of unbridled nostalgia yank the listener in with the opening experience, "Two Birds, One Stoned." Supertinyinfinitedans is imbued with vintage emo-brilliance and feels like it was recorded in the early 2000s. Yes Yes A Thousand Times Yes wastes no time preparing the listener for a beautiful voyage through this one-of-a-kind time capsule packed with delightful memories.


The album then transcends into the second track experience, "Buzzing Still// Cousin's House." With jangling, fuzzy guitar patterns that beautifully intermingle with raw-throated passionate vocals, Supertinyinfinitedans displays a dynamic and potent mixture of their talents very early in the album, something that effortlessly continues throughout.

Other highlights are "Synchronize Yr Watches" and "Spellcasting." On this record, each track exposes a colorfully nostalgic approach to their addictive atmosphere, with dreamy guitar riffs, math-drenched melodies, and aggressive percussion impulses.

At this point in the record, "Realizing You're Everywhere" amps up their punk origins to 11. This tune, a good change of pace on the album, demonstrates the band's sense of punk beatitude without losing emphasis on the other components exhibited thus far before jumping back into more charismatic and gritty mathy waters with "Slash Fund."

"Sensual Sports" and "Mas and/or Menos" are unique little gems full of offsetting little surprises instrumentally and vocally that will be somewhat dark horses on this record. With interesting subtle note changes and dualistic harmonies in both songs, these are sure to be album favorites based solely on instrumental and lyrical creation.

The album concludes with a beautiful final song called "The Movies". It's a touching combination of thoughtful lyrics and impressive instrumentals, making it the standout track on the entire record. In just under four minutes, the band demonstrates why it's worth listening to the entire album all the way through.

Supertinyinfinitedans is more than just a step back through time using vocals and instrumentals energies to take listeners there. It's a powerful depiction of hope in a difficult time. Supertinyinfinitedans demonstrates that a band can connect with its audience with appealing instrumentation countered by rage, despair, and optimism in its lyrics. Supertinyinfinitedans does this and more, cementing their place in the scene and an emerging interest for more of their music in the future.
