Don't worry, I'll download it twice.

Karen looks hot in that picture. And apparently she's an advocate for both peace and beer.

That's David Sitek from TV on the Radio to the right of Karen. I just read last week that he produced the Yeah Yeah Yeahs previous albums, which I didn't know. I don't believe he produced this one though.

Imperor, it's cool you're waiting.

I noticed you had listened to the Is Is EP. I love that thing so much.


It's the only releases of theirs I actually own

It really is a fantastic little EP. I listened to Fever to Tell today for the first time in a very long time and it brought back some great, great memories from adolescence. I still think "Maps" remains the best tune on there, as bandwagon or cliche as that may be. Their slower songs are my absolute favorites (see "Modern Romance"), but that doesn't mean I don't love the movers and shakers.

I'm glad to be listening to them again. Great band. "Zero" is phe.... wait for it...... nomenal.

Someone at the office was blasting Maps on their computer today. I was working on something at the time, so I didn't think, "Wait, who the hell is listening to Maps?!" until it was long over.

Seeing the video for it is what got me into them. And my only experience with Rock Band (which, for the record, I'm not a fan of) was my belting it. It's probably in my top ten songs of the decade.

I'm not a big fan of videos, never really was, but, the Maps video was/is mesmerizing, and also is what got me into the band.

I don't know about the music videos, but I'm a fan of this:

YouTube - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Down Boy on Letterman

He produced the new one as well, along with Nick Lunay (Arcade Fire, Talking Heads, INXS). Also, members of TVOTR perform on 2 or 3 of the It's Blitz! tracks.

Alright, just finished my first listen and it was pretty damn great. A mix of fun, dancey rock songs and some beautiful, more mellow balladey (that's not a word) stuff. I really want to listen to it again, actually, and I probably will at some point later tonight. Yeah!
