Featured Band: Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Just imagine what the world would be like if New York's Yeah Yeah Yeahs had stuck with their original name, when Karen O and Nicolas Zinner were playing folk-like rock under the moniker Unitard. Chilling. Lucky for us the group switched names and genres. They've been playing together since 2000, developing and polishing their sleek garage rock sound over the course of nine years and three full-length records. Their third LP, It's Blitz! hit record stands (or rather, online store websites) on March 10. In it, the group strips away some of the more oppressive guitar sounds to reveal a sleek, savvy synth-led melodies. Check it out on Future Perfect Radio.
