I've had Soft Shock on repeat for a while now. Subconsciously, I might want to beat this song into the ground so I can get it out of my head and move on. Or maybe I'm just indulging myself in one of the best songs of the year so far. It's gorgeous, and really suits my mood at the moment.

When I picked up the Doves CD earlier this week, I checked on the status of the Zero vinyl single, and they had gotten it in that day. A quick confirmation that I had bought the CD the week before, and I was walking out with it.

The Animal Collective remix is...interesting, but I guess it's what you'd expect from them. The only thing remaining from the original version is Karen O's vocals, and even that is just the repeating of the first verse over and over.

Still, cool to have.

So I was out doing bad things when this was on last night...but I just typed in Yeah Yeah Yeahs Saturday Night Live on YouTube and it looks like they played 'Zero' and 'Maps'

Kinda strange that they didn't play another song off the new record but, whatever.

YouTube - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Zero" on SNL 4/11/09 (TheAudioPerv.com)

I gotta say though, the SNL sound mix isn't that good, they sorta messed up TV on the Radio's in the same way.

Agreed, the guitars and drums were really low in the mix.

With better mixing, that would have been unspeakably awesome. Karen O looked a bit nervous, but she's so cool that it didn't matter all that much. And Zero has to have the most badass guitar tone ever.

KO was definitely nervous, but I thought they did well on both performances. Sound wasn't perfect, but at least it wasn't as bad as it was for TVOTR.

I'm not saying she's the best looking woman in our musical circles today. But she's certainly the sexiest.

I found that surprising, too. While it was cool to hear Maps, I was looking forward to what else they'd play from the new album. Oh well.
