Classic Track of Day – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Maps is a classic. Stripped down it’s even more clear. Karen O’s pristine vocal shimmers when wrapped in a string arrangement. I consider their last release a pop diversion sorts. But as history reveals – if you have the talent you can take many roads. It will be interesting to see where they go next, together or as individual artists.

  1. Thanks for this. I have Skeletons in Acoustic as well – and I love Karen O’s voice set to a simple guitar – they have got some really interesting music and love them. Their music seems so free!

  2. Thanks for posting this. I agree with Steve in that their acoustic versions are so much more powerful than their studio versions. However, in regards to Maps specifically, I always thought that the song was carried by the drums just because it was such a complement to her tone. Still, this is beautiful.
