Product Description

Product Description

Japanese Exclusive EP Collection. Features Five Tracks from the 'yeah Yeah Yeahs' EP, and Three Tracks Taken from the 'machine; Single.


Having shared bills with 2001 darlings White Stripes and the Strokes, it's not shocking that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs also are wrapped in a sticky film of hype. They tackle it explicitly when indispensable singer Karen O croons, "It's our time to be hated / So glad that we made it" (the conceit plays to a tune vaguely reminiscent of "Crimson and Clover"). To be safe, the YYYs are calling themselves sellouts before they sell out--but for this trio of rock & roll revivalists, sounding good enough to be popular is their only crime. Attacking with a snottiness sorely needed these days, they confront the critical types as (jealous) "punk kids" anyway. With a sexy yet imperfect swagger, they come on like calculating outsiders bent on forcing their way in. As an antidote to the glossy/rough New Yorkerism presented by the Strokes, the YYYs serve up dirtier yet sublime grit, in five tunes about bad sex, "art stars" and "mystery boys" who will "be your toys." Careening drums pop into synch with sparse, metallic punk guitar, and none of O's "yeah"s and "baby"s are wasted or otherwise lost in the band's econo-power style: surprisingly loud, though bassless, and carved with abandon from '60s garage, the playfulness of X-Ray Spex, the sparseness of the Delta 5, and the shambolic thrash of the Fall. --Cyndi Elliott

If you are intersted in the yeah yeah yeah's this album is defianly a good way to start off...
1. Bang - a song that will make you fall in love with karen o's voice instantly & youll defiantly feel an urge to sing & dance too, its a great way to start off the ep.
2. Mystery Girl - now this song will not only inspire you to sing along & dance too but also will make you feel as is if you must keep listening & find out more about this wonderous band.
3. Art Star - it starts out much like 1 & 2 but than she begans growling/screaming 'art star'... i enjoy the song & find it very useful for letting out frustration. also it gives the album a bit more diversity which brings it together very nicely.
4. Miles Away - this is a very pleasant song that will probably become one of your favorites, but than again theyll all probably be your favortie... it gives you a sense of triumph a real good feel-good song.
5. Our Time - also a feel-good song, if your feeling sad this will defiantly bring you up... its a very nice way to end the ep.
So, once you listen to this throughly, & theres no doubt youll enjoy it, than you should pick up 'fever to tell' there most recent album, yeha youll love it, enjoy.

One cannot say enough about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with what little effort they have broken into the New York Underground Rock Scene - "ARRRRTTT STAAARRRRR". There is not one track on this debut EP that can be considered weak, it frankly is a brilliant effort from the YYY. Taking after The White Stripes no bass effort, the band consists of vocals by Karen O, guitars by Nick Zinner, and Brian Chase on drums. Who needs bass when Nick's entrancing guitars can carry the duty of 3 men alone. Waaaa!
In a short 13 minutes you'll be taken for an amazing ride. "Miles Away" is a rythmic rollercoster that screams to be listened to over and over again. "Art Star" does no justice of their "art-punk" labeling as its far too chic and far too ace for such a mediocre title.
Its about time for the Strokes to get off their New York rock star pedestal, make way for the YYY. Indeed, they are that good.

I got this EP after I heard "Fever to tell" and I was pleasently surprised.
It puts all their other songs into context, brings their musical style back to basics with a rawer indie sound.
Karen O's voice is fantastic.She varies from a cute kitten purr to a demented shriek often in the space of one song, and her voice is what make the band special.
"Bang" is the perfect opener to the album with its wonderfull jerky guitar riff, and sex filled lyrics setting the tone for the next 14 minutes.
"Mystery Girl" proves the band capable of a steady rock'n roll number,and "Art Star", my favourite, contains all the elements which make the Yeah Yeah Yeahs such a great band;the inspired guitar riffs,versitial vocals, and punk sensibility.
Not to mention the pop catchiness in all those "doos".
As a guitarist, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a lot of appeal for me because of Nick Zinner's exellent guitar work. Just listen to the riff in "Miles Away" and the way his guitar parts sometimes echoe the lyrics.
"Our time" is the closest thing to a slow song on the EP,and showcases the Yeah Yeah Yeahs potential for writing emotive and sincere songs like "maps" on "Fever to Tell".
I would recommend that anyone who enjoyed "Fever to Tell" buy this record as it condences the Yeah Yeah Yeahs sound into 5 slices of brilliance.A fine introduction or definition of the band.

Now when I say this band's amazing.I mean they've set a standard of being off the wall,and that's great.To me they're absolutely not generic,they don't have a sixties,seventie's or eighties sound,at all,except for a slight punky sound,that I guess I'll be willing to over look.But,to me they sound more like a loungy ,swanky,styled rock band.Kind of like a spead up really hyper enthusiastic version of Mazzy Star.As a matter of fact,all the band's that people compare them to that I've heard,Suck!!!The White Stripes,the KILLS,Green Day,The Strokes,to me this band sounds WAY,WAY different,and a billion times better.And that's good,because alot of those other bands symbolize a retro sound that I don't like,and will never miss.Now if this band wanted to sound as totally generic,and lame as the other's.Well then I'm sorry to misinterprit them,and this album,and their other one Fever to Tell.It's in my personal opinion that the Yeah,Yeah,Yeah's are on a totally higher level than those other bands.Now whether or not they know this,I don't know,but now as we speak they headline for the White Stripes,and the White Stripes should thank their lucky stars that their no talent behinds can even wittness the Yeah,Yeah,Yeahs.
And I'm not talking musical talent,as far as the guitars,and drums are concerned,if that was the case none of the these bands would have,really any talent.I'd just listen to the stuff I've been listening to,and playing,practically all my life,and that would be,Power Metal.(You see I've been playing guitar quite excellently for 10 year's now,and I'm 23 today)!and I'd of never found this diamond in the rough if I didn't reavaluate what it really takes to be a good sounding band.Karen O's amazing,and unique,totally uncopied vocals, make this band.
