The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a new record coming out in April.
This is awesome news!
Mosquito, the band’s fourth studio album looks to be a huge step forward musically. The first single, Sacrilige, is a clanky, gritty, experimental track that showcases Karen O’s delicious voice perfectly. It even features a gospel choir towards the end.
Oh, and the standard edition album cover is just nuts! (The one featured above is the deluxe packaging cover.)
I first discovered oOoOO near the end of 2011 and I’ve been hooked since. His music is so intriguing, and sounds like nothing else. There is a eerie feel to his work that makes you want to close your eyes and just listen. It’s chill-inducing.
-oOoOO’s second EP, released on April 30th, 2012.-
As of now oOoOO has released 2 EPs and a handful of singles and unofficial remixes. He (and his label Tri-Angle) has stated there is indeed a full length album in the works. Exciting news!
Here’s a few highlight tracks:
