 Notes & Reviews
 
At the turn of the twenty-first century, the New York City music scene floated in a surfaceless orbit of samplers, shoegazers, and delay pedals. The city's guitars lay choked by a digital fog, or else they lay dustily forgotten. Then, in 2002, an unbridled five-song EP by an unknown band brought noise, sex, passion, and mayhem back to the stage and to the stereo. The band's name evoked the kid who knows that whoever's in charge is full of S*#t - 'yeah, yeah, yeah' - but it also rang with the affirmation of pure rock and roll: F*#k yeah! The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' first full-length album, Fever to Tell, was simultaneously filthy, infectious, sloppy, and brilliant. You could dance to it, and you could probably die to it. 'Maps' was nominated for a Grammy, and the record went gold in the UK. IT'S BLITZ! Signals both a glance backward and a step forward for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Zinner's vintage Arp the same model used on records by the Cars, Joy Division, and Kraftwerk-contributes atmospheric washes ('Skeletons'), disco wiggles ('Dance till you're dead!' Karen sings on 'Heads Will Roll'), and New Wave melodrama ('Soft Shock'). The first single, 'Zero,' combines all these elements to create a dance-floor anthem that sings directly to the listener.
