Okay, so I broke down the other day and purchased the eponymous little Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ EP. It’s quite strong, though it only is only 5 songs strong. Although they’re being touted as best buddies with The Strokes and the White Stripes, the YYYs bring a superior energy level to their music. Sure, its’ all self-conscious 1980s bad-hair mope material, but Karen O, the lead singer is tremendously interesting as a vocalist, ranging from loud yawns to crazed rock anthems. I await their first real album, due out in a few months.
