Musical Pairings: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – It's Blitz (paired with Tomato Chickpeas Soup)

Kasey and Matthew are presently enjoying their honeymoon. Their whereabouts are presently unknown. They were lasted seen in the international wing of the Dallas airport yesterday evening. In light of these circumstances, today’s post is essentially a new and improved re-run: sorta like when Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and George Clooney remade Ocean’s 11. I’m not saying it is better than the original, but the new version is pretty awesome. Anyways, if you liked it before, you’ll love it now. P.S. Completely new posts will resume in October!

Kasey’s tomato chickpea soup isn’t as simple as it may seem: complex flavors mix together to form a fully satisfying, soul-warming meal. It’s Blitz, the third full length from NYC-based Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is similarly complex and also fully satisfying. Arguably, the best Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ album to date, It’s Blitz finds the band perfecting the styles and themes they first approached on the underrated Show Your Bones.

Tracks like “Dragon Queen,” “Zero” & “Heads Will Roll,” Karen O and Co., successfully weave hints of disco and electro-pop into the garage-punk style the band previously perfected. Although It’s Blitz has received a mixed reception since it’s release, I still suspect it will find a place on a number of Top 10 lists at year’s end. If you’ve let this one slip by you – you should really check it out. At the time of writing this post, Insound amazingly still offers copies of a free 7″ that includes an Animal Collective remix of Zero with purchase of the album.
