The Yeah Yeah Yeah's took SXSW's theme of being the place to be for the latest and greatest in music to heart last night by debuting several songs from their soon to be released Mosquito. The debuted songs include the title record's track, "Under the Earth", "Subway", and single "Sacrilege". The band added an experimental vibe to several of their classic tracks, even getting a little spacey on "Maps".
Also on display was Karen O's "Vegas Elvis on LSD" look she seems to be sporting these days, which is wild to say the least. She recently spoke to Pitchfork about the change:
Yeah, I'm doing a lot of suits: Elvis in Vegas, Bootsy Collins, James Brown, Elton John. Old-school, Vegas, country and soul. It's kind of moody, kind of glam. There's a lot of wish fulfillment going on with this record-- stuff I've always wanted that I can now tick off my list.
Oh, it that what this is?
