The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have just released an exclusive iTunes Originals album which features some old stuff, some new stuff, and some different versions of stuff. Here is one standout from the release, an acoustic version of “Hysteric”.
Karen O is best known for her charismatic leadership that often commands attention on high energy tracks that make you want to move. What makes her such a rare creature is that her leadership shines just as brightly on acoustic tracks like this. Sometimes it lies in the little things -the way she says certain words, when she let’s loose and when she holds back. She’s definitely one of the greatest frontwomen out right now. Saw this at PMA.
