Yeah Yeah Yeahs "It's Blitz"
2009 release from the New York trio, the follow-up to 2006's Show Your Bones. It's Blitz! Was recorded with Nick Launay (producer of YYY's 2007 Is Is EP) and longtime collaborator TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. The album signals both a glance backward and a step forward for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Guitarist Nick Zinner had brought along an old keyboard he bought on eBay to work with during the writing session, not expecting it to end up on the album. However, the sounds of the vintage Arp were so right for the new songs that they found their way into the atmospheric washes of "Skeletons", the Disco wiggles of "Heads Will Roll", and New Wave melodrama of "Soft Shock". The whole record has a new feeling of space and atmosphere, a new sonic dimension, if you will.
