Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Show Your Bones
For the past two decades our ears have been in training for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ vocalist Karen O. Patti Smith, Kim Gordon, Sleater-Kinney and Julie Doiron’s Eric Trip days all tutored us in the ways of rock—earbud-imprinting vital data on our cilia. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Show Your Bones is all anyone will need to kick out the jams. Best played in a car with the volume set at 11, you will instantly become a rock star, invincible to daily drudge, screaming along to O’s words at every stoplight. There’s no sophomore curse here: This is a band that has chosen not to sit back and crank it out but instead move its sound to a place called bigger and louder.
