Yesterday, writing about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ new album It’s Blitz Ta-Nehisi Coates said he “liked each one of the YYY albums better than the last” and idiosyncratic view he attributes to “missing any music created by white people during the mid to late 80s.” I, for one, have been listening to music created by white people for my entire life and completely agree with him about the band’s growing powers. Besides which, Karen O is half-Korean so it’s hardly white people music. Well, okay, that’s exactly what it is. But still.
At any rate, I’m lamer than ever these days so dismiss my views if you like, but I’m loving this album.
