Luckily, Maps recently got played in my shuffle of neverending music, reminding me not only that I have tickets to see them but that they have a new CD coming out.
Of course, I can’t really forget something that big, right? With the bands super-duper-smash hit Maps annhiliating airwaves, a massive cult following, and the likes of MTV raving about them, it’s pretty hard to forget the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I’m not complaining though, because their new CD had a lot of hype to live up to and I think they did a pretty good job.
Show Your Bones is the second full length album from the YYY’s, scheduled to hit shelves March 28. The CD has been leaked for awhile, with an assortment of various tracks posted all over the internet, you could probably manage to throw together your own LP from random downloading. The album seems to act as return-to-form springbroad that captures the raw energies of each band member, espcially Karen O‘s voice. She has one of those voices that you might love to hate or hate to love, either way the talent within her vocal chords is a force to reckoned with. Check out some of the new tracks, if you haven’t had the chance to recently.
