No No No
By request from Nickie, here is a magnificent acoustic track from Brooklyn's own Yeah Yeah Yeahs. With an incredibly pure shriek/scream, Karen O is most often compared to PJ Harvey and Chrissie Hynde. These acoustic tracks will certainly bring to mind the latter, though in much of their plugged material, does anyone besides me also think a lot of Mates of State? Now phenomenally successful for an indie band, they've been nominated for Grammys and Moonmen, but they really maintain a ragged and raffish charm.
