Music by Yak Zoo

Neurotic, comedic, insecure hip hop music created by a total newbie musician on an iPad. Here are the albums that are reluctantly available for your listening tolerance:

Shame Colony
Songs of Nonsense and of Inexperience
Humanitude
Second Album
Insecure

Shame Colony

Released: August 2021

Shame Colony

Apple Music / Spotify / YouTube Music / Amazon

There are many annoying voices in my head…

Listen to Might as Well Be Naked from this album on SoundCloud.

What others are (probably) saying about Shame Colony:

✏️ Well, I guess it’s something.

✏️ Some of the songs aren’t really songs. In fact, most of them aren’t really songs.

Songs of Nonsense and Inexperience

Released: January 2021

Songs of Nonsense and of Inexperience

Apple Music / Spotify / YouTube Music / Amazon

A lot of nonsense here, along with some characters who are lonely, disoriented, or inexperienced…

Listen to Happy Birthday to Me from this album on SoundCloud.

What others are (probably) saying about Songs of Nonsense and of Inexperience:

✏️ I thought I ordered a new toaster and it turns out I mistakenly bought this album. One star. My toast is soggy.

✏️ …At least I can agree on the album title.

Humanitude

Released: August 2020

Humanitude

Apple Music / Spotify / YouTube Music / Amazon

This one is about people… with… problems… or maybe not problems, but more like… well… it’s just about, you know… humanity… Or, I mean, more like… humanitude.

What others are (probably) saying about Humanitude:

✏️ I have enough problems already, why do I need to listen to other people’s problems???…

✏️ What I can definitively say about this album is that it is Yak Zoo’s third album.

The Failed Second Album

Released: May 2020

The Failed Second Album

Apple Music / Spotify / YouTube Music / Amazon

Some slightly more experimental beats, all written while hiding in my attic during the pandemic.

Listen to The Pandemic Panic from this album on SoundCloud.

What others are (probably) saying about Yak Zoo’s second album:

✏️ Just as bad as the first album, but this time it’s even less catchy…

✏️ This album proves that social distancing did not help Yak Zoo’s creative process.

Insecure and Nervous and Scared

Released: March 2020

Insecure and Nervous and Scared

Apple Music / Spotify / YouTube Music / Amazon

My first attempt at learning how to turn all my neurotic thoughts into music. So, yeah, some pretty simple lyrics and lots of melodies on the klezmer scale…

Listen to Licensed Therapist from this album on SoundCloud.

What others are (probably) saying about Yak Zoo’s debut album:

✏️ Not enough yaks. Not enough zoos. 0 stars. 😭

✏️ Yak Zoo, this is your mother. Do you have to use all those bad words? Why can’t you sing about happy stuff?
