Yeah Yeah Yeah’s – It’s Blitz!; first listen.

Posted in Music by jukeboxparables on March 8, 2009

Ok so you had to be hovering about yesterday because it seems the entire album has now been replaced by 30sec samples on their myspace, when I actually checked out their page all the songs had 0 plays It must have just been uploaded. This album along with Sonic Youth’s – Eternal are my two picks this year for most anticipated albums. And after hearing It’s Blitz a good 3-4times over yesterday this hasn’t changed. It’s definitely not a disappointment.

The first few tracks; Zero, Heads Will Roll, Soft Shock are all synth-laden dance-rock numbers. The album then takes a slightly somber tone through; Skeletons, Dull Life, Shame And Fortune and then a standout track Runaway It could well be the new Maps I’m not going to state that outright because the album closer Little Shadow is also a minimalist heart-wrenching sing along.

It’s definitely something new, gone is the all-out rock. But thankfully it hasn’t been replaced by ‘whats-hot-right-now’ going all-out electronic. Even though there are hints of that. It’s more an introspective sound.

Full review coming when I get my hands on it!
