MP3: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Peel Session 2002



Here we are then, the second of today's luverly Peel sessions. For some reason I really really struggled to get into this band. For ages they just seemed like the annoyingly hip uber trendy New Yorkers that, well, they are. But then I realised that along with and despite those things, they were actually pretty damn fantastic. I think it had something to do with that great Arcade Fire cover of Maps, because after I heard that i've totally rethought my opinion of the band, and although their second record wasn't really up to the standards of the first (sounded a bit too much like bad Banshees at points), I still think they're yet to make their truly defining statement. Hopefully that will come soon, but until then, here's some rather nice session tracks.

These four tracks were recorded on the 10th of July 2002, and broadcast on the 22nd August. Miles Away first featured on the bands debut self titled EP from 2001 (wow. 5 years ago?!?). The other three are of course from the band's 2003 debut album Fever To Tell. As ever, hope you like them.

There is a corridor that leads into an empty room.

The room is completely empty except for a lamp in one of the corners.

On the other side of the corridor are three switches.

You know that one of them turns on the lamp, the other two don't do anything.

You can play around with the switches turning each of them on and off as much as you like, then you can go into the room one time to check whether the lamp is on or off (there is a door so you can't know without entering the room).

Leaving the room, you have to know which of the 3 switches works and which 2 don't. The question is: How do you do it?
