Its Blitz

by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

9 / 10

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have put together a shimmeringly fun set of songs which on first run through puts a blimmin’ big smile on your face, and an overwhelming desire to smash the local dancefloor with yr best cool moves – either that, or leaping off the ol’ couch repeatedly while singing along with Karen O (“your zerrrr-oooo!!”).

This one’s a stonker. It’s like...it’s like an older, cooler sister to the MGMT album. If the cool club in town was actually a kindergarten, MGMT would be happy on the mat eating their crayons, while Yeah Yeah Yeahs have bolted for the door, jubilantly streaking out into the sunshine with multi-coloured ribbons trailing behind them.

Possibly sounding off to the converted here on UTR (you guys are fans of the band already, right?) but I’m saying instant classic for 2009 – and would love to see this lot performed live very soon!

 

Sources say vinyl on the way shortly! Released on Interscope.
