So I have recently begun writing for a music website called comfortcomes.com. It produces a sizable amount of content daily and is generally quite respectful to up-and-coming acts, which makes it a great team to be a part of.
Last week my first review was posted for the latest release from indie pop darlings the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Witness my tedious nostalgia as I recount the band’s glory days and wonder what the hell happened here.
Here’s a teaser, or more of a synopsis I suppose, for the lazy jerks who refuse to open a new window or simply hate reading 400 word reviews (I know I do):
For their latest, the band recruited producers Nick Launay (Talking Heads, Kate Bush, INXS) and Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, who has been consistently involved in the band’s repertoire. The final result is perhaps the most uniform full length the band has produced, and as such, it maintains a pleasant – albeit unexciting – middleground.
Someone needs to tell this band that the ’80’s are over, and that when they were here, they weren’t all that great.
Be sure to visit the band’s website and listen to their new single here!
