(More Yeah Yeah Yeahs photos)
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs play McCarren Pool Park in Brooklyn this Friday and Saturday August 11th and 12th. For those not familiar with the YYY's, "their music is a mix of retro styles with heavy rock/punk guitars, synthetic sounds and screaming, and erratic and bluesy vocals." (Wikipedia)
For a more in depth analysis checkout their Pitchfork interview.
Here's an excerpt:
Pitchfork: Did you feel any need to live up to or actively thwart expectations? Or did you feel any expectations?
Karen O: The best way I can answer that question is saying mostly I have expectations of myself, what's going on with me as a person in my life, my likes and dislikes. The new album is reflective of who we are as people now, and that's why it probably sounds so different from what we were doing before. We're all different now.
