Yeah! It's Blitz!

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, a New York City based band released their third studio album, It’s Blitz!, in March of this year. The album consists of ten elaborate tracks including smash dance hits such as the single Zero, and softer indie rock ballads sung by lead crooner Karen O. The band also consists of drummer Brian Chase and guitarist Nick Zinner.

Zero starts off the album demanding you “Shake it like a ladder to the sun” and succeeds in making the listener want to shake it, bop it, and twist it. Hysterics, a softer song on the album, speaks to the romantic listener without giving way to cliché.

On It’s Blitz!, Yeah Yeah Yeahs blend the hyper and upbeat characteristics of a good night out with the sweetness of a lullaby to create a unique and addicting album. Karen O brings the album to a close with all the charm of a goodnight kiss on the forehead through her soft delivery of Little Shadow.

Karen O’s strong vocals combined with the bands intense creativity and imaginative lyrics have created a strong female-led arrangement that defies the traditional image of female musicians and breaks-through into a new genre of music for the contemporary listener.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ bombardment of indie-rock freshness with original pop-dance sensations makes them a band that warrants your attention – if it doesn’t have it already.

Recently I had the chance to check out a relatively new local group, The Joel Brown Trio, at Corduroy restaurant in Kits. The group is so new I don't think they even have a myspace page, but they definitely have their act down.
