Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Mosquito

April 12, 2013

Mosquito features ten songs, produced by Nick Launay and Dave Sitek, with James Murphy and Sam Spiegel production on one track. All eleven are mixed by Craig Silvey, and the bulk of it was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornilla, Texas, with Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith) appearing on one very special track. The deluxe album also includes 4 additional acoustic/demo tracks.

"We would love for this music to make our fans feeeeel something, for it to stir some shit up inside of them, whatever that may be," says singer Karen O. "SO much feeling went into this record, it was the rope ladder thrown down into the ditch for us to climb up and dust ourselves off. I hope others can climb up it too; we’re excited to share the good vibes."

"We took a more playful, LO-FI approach to songwriting," says O. "Much of the music was demoed in our little basement studio in Manhattan with drum machines, a shitty sample keyboard and tons of delay - which we called the soup."

"I think this record has more moodier and tripped-out songs than you've ever heard from us,” she continues. "You might catch some roots reggae and minimalist psychedelia influences in there."

"This is a feel good, food for the soul, chicken soup for the ears Yeah Yeah Yeahs record - which doesn't mean easy listening - it means kind of raw, kind of chaotic, kind of dreamy," says O. "Very us."
