The Daily Shuffle #16: 'Audiotrack 7'



Huh?
'Audiotrack 7' from K.O. At Home - an unreleased solo album of demos by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' front-women Karen O never intended for public consumption and leaked by some geezer called Mike after being given to TV On The Radio's guitarist Dave Sitek.

Why?
So that I can make pretentious comments regarding the unbridled artistry and raw intimacy of Karen O's home recordings and their superiority over the Yeah Yeah Yeah's mainstream catalogue. Also discography torrents.

And?
Kicking things off with a sombre countdown in the style of a mission control flight controller who hates rockets, Karen O. drops us into a lilting, molasses-slow guitar and tambourine sound-scape before launching into (probably a bit of strong phrase in this context) a vocal-melody-mimicry of the guitar riff. The result is, by my best approximation, what you could expect if you asked First Aid Kit to perform a Kurt Cobain cover in the style of medieval ballad as if one of the Swedish sisters was off-sick. All-in-all, if you can hack the lingering tempo it's a rather nice example of the unbridled artistry and raw intimacy of Karen O's home recordings and their superiority over the Yeah Yeah Yeah's mainstream catalogue.

Who cares?
Fans of home-fi, bare-boned, slolk (slow-folk). Made me think of The Steals (a, I now realise, not-at-all-well-known band who I should probably stop referencing) for some reason, but with less Northern mysticism and Enyan reverb.
