It was from these outcasts that she learned about the bands you would think of as Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ forefathers: Sonic Youth, Pavement, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. But they also turned her on to artists like Neil Young and Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, whose plaintive romanticism was more influential. “Weird bleeding hearts,” Orzolek calls them. “They were the ones who really made me think I could sing.”
i’m sooo excited for the new YYYs album. definitely going to pick up tickets to their live show in boston now that i’m not unemployed.
