Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero  

I had this song playing in the background yesterday and mistook it for Surferosa, which has to be a compliment. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a band who've often got close to being brilliant, but never quite reached the summit, although I did really like Turn Into. With their new album they've gone in the same direction as everyone these days: electro-pop, with added extra 80s influence. Zero is a great lead single, and I've heard a few other songs from the album, which have also been pretty good (I love Dull Life), and very Surferosa-meets-Ladytron. I think the response to the new material is going to be very positive.
