This is another one of those instant obsession songs. Something about Karen O's rawr as the music explodes does something for me and I can't help but listen to this song over and over again. Alternating between their loud garage punk sound to the softer sounds found on their second album, "Down Boy" is my favorite song off Is Is, an EP released in 2007.
I have to admit though, that as sexy as Karen O sounds in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I don't find her attractive at all. Am I alone in this? And if not, am I the only one bothered by this? Either way, she rocks and has a killer voice so I suppose it doesn't matter. Currently, she is working on a side project titled Native Korean Rock. However, a third LP is said to come out "soon." Whatever that means. I got it from Wikipedia.
