The star of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ latest music video is a blood-thirsty mosquito that feeds on little children. It’s beautiful, disgusting and totally worth watching. We have the clip for you below. Also, Courtney Love announced a brief U.S. tour, but don’t get your hopes up Hole fans because she’s going solo. We also have some updates on Kanye West‘s forthcoming album. All that and more below.

It makes perfect sense to us that indie rockers Mumford & Sons will be headlining this year’s Lollapalooza. Earlier this week, they announced they would be embarking on a long North American tour, covering the U.S. and Canada. We have the full list of dates below. Also, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs released a new music video featuring model Lily Cole. All that and more below.

Fans of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have a good reason to be edgy of late—it’s been roughly four years since the band has released a new album’s worth of music, as their last album, the pop-tinged It’s Blitz!, was released in 2009. But relax, kids, as the band has posted a new teaser clip on YouTube announcing their newest album (along with offering up the briefest snippet of a new song), Mosquito.

Too much time has passed since the Yeah Yeah Yeahs released their last record. Thankfully, the band just announced that they are nearly done recording their fourth album, which they plan to release early next year.

Reminding everyone who doesn’t live in New York how cool it would be if you could live in New York, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs played a surprise tenth anniversary show last night in NYC, performing in a tiny art space just off of the East River in Brooklyn, according to NME:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs return with another music video for “Skeletons” which is directed by the lovely Karen O‘s boyfriend, Barney Clay. The track is one of the down-tempo songs on their latest album, It’s Blitz!, and it’s fair to say it’s probably the dreamiest as well.
The video is a perfect match for the ethereal tone, although the term “ethereal” is a bit of an understatement. Angels, clouds, and the supernatural all come together for black and white visuals that intrigue with the uncertainty between safety and fear. Whatever it all is, it’s a gorgeous watch. We’ve got the video plus an the “making of” footage for you below!

The Oscars just released a statement revealing which songs are nominated for the golden statue. As usual, the list is very lengthy in correlation to the many films released this year. What we find pleasing about this year’s list is the amount of indie artists who are nominated.
We all knew Karen O got her Grammy nod for her work on Where the Wild Things Are when Miley Cyrus got booted, but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ front lady has also been nominated for an Oscar. Other notable mentions include Jack White‘s “Fly Farm Blues” from It Might Get Loud, Lykke Li‘s “Possibility” from New Moon, and Jarvis Cocker‘s “Petey’s Song” from Fantastic Mr. Fox. Check the entire list out below!

Miley Cyrus may be on top of the world right now but she can’t always have everything. When the Grammy nominations were revealed, Cyrus received a nod for her song “The Climb” which was released as a single for the Hannah Montana film. However, it was recently revoked when the panel discovered the song was not originally written for the film.
So who’s next in line for the Grammy nomination? Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Karen O for her work on Where The Wild Things Are soundtrack, and we can’t help but gloat a little bit. It’s about time the indie world has another prevalent presence at the Grammys. The winning speech from The Swell Season‘s Marketa Irgolva at the Oscars two years ago warmed out little indie hearts, and we’re hoping Karen O and The Kids will be able to do the same for the Grammys.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been selected for the ATP Festival lineup which is great news. However, what’s even more fantastic than that is the fact that they will be playing fan favorite album, Fever To Tell, in its entirety!
That’s right. They’re reminding us why we loved them in the first place, and it’s probably fun to play a whole album for a show anyway. Everyone’s doing it. Pixies did it last night in LA, and Bruce Springsteen’s been doing it as well among many others. Pitchfork Festival always has a band play an entire album on the first day. It’s what the fans want!
