Yeah Yeah Yeahs' early 'Blitz'

From the Hotline blog: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have moved up the release of new disc “It’s Blitz,” perhaps in part to it circulating rather freely around the internet. Both the single “Zero” and second track dance floor stomper “Heads Will Roll” lighting up the blog world and getting heavy spins at local parties (ahem).

"It’s Blitz,” which should show up on more than a few Best of 2009 lists with its Blondie-flavored, heavy synth-looped new wave flair, will now drop digitally on March 10, with hard copies hitting stores on March 31.

While the new disc doesn’t seem to have any jaw-dropping moments like previous releases – see 2003’s Song of the Decade contender “Maps” or its country-boy baby cousin, “Turn Into” from 2006’s underrated sophomore disc “Show Your Bones” – it does hold up as one of the first strong album releases of the year.
