Music of 2009: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – It’s Blitz

yeah-yeah-yeahs_its-blitzIt’s Blitz   was promoted as a more electronic sound, but while I hear that influence – it still sounds like the same Yeah Yeah Yeahs to me – and that’s a good thing. I think their image makes people dismiss them, but YYY has quietly become one of the best indie bands around, and while people want to talk about acts like Grizzly Bear or Andrew Bird this year, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are doing their own thing and doing it well.

Definitely get the deluxe version – the acoustic versions are better in most cases than the original.

My Favorites: Soft Shock, Hysteric
