Yeah Yeah Yeah's – Skeletons
26 Jan 10
Before you ask why they’re still flogging that old horse, releasing singles 7 months after the release of “Its Blitz” (the third studio album from art-punk rockers Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) it’s because they can, and the albums awesome, so there. Finally getting around to showcasing some of the slower burning, decidedly more epic tracks from that album comes “Skeletons”. Building electronic soundscapes wash over the sound of an eventual military drumbeat and that hold your arms in the air moment towards the end, its a hauntingly slow moment among the dance floor anthems and sometime dance-funk that inhabited the album. The video reflects this, with the band projected onto smoke in a graveyard and Karen O dressed like the bride of Frankenstein. Whats not to love?
