Recently I was contacted on behalf of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's to offer a giveaway on the blog. I have been listening to the new YYY's on repeat since the day I got a copy, so needless to say I am pretty pumped to be able to offer this to you guys. It's Blitz! is seriously the perfect Spring time soundtrack. It's full of intensity that we expect from the YYY's but also a lighter, dreamier side. I can't say enough good stuff about the album. Among the many favs on the album...Heads Will Roll and Hysteric are current repeats on the ipizzle.
Three readers will receive a copy of the new cd It's Blitz! and a poster. Kind of awesome, right? All you have to do is leave a comment. I'll choose the winners on Saturday a.m and contact them through email.
If you haven't heard the new album check out the YYY's myspace page. Also, they are about to kick off a huge tour on the 23rd, if you can catch them I highly recommend it. Here's a little info about the album:
"It's Blitz!" was recorded with Nick Launay (producer of YYYs 2007 released "Is Is" EP) and longtime collaborator TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek. The album sessions took the city dwelling band from the snow-covered fields of rural Massachusetts and Long View Studios, to Sitek's Staygold complex in Brooklyn before heading south to a studio in Tornillo in the Texan desert for further confinement and recording. "It's Blitz!" 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". "Obviously, synths have been in rock music forever," Zinner says. "But to us it feels new, which is all we really care about--that excitement."
