LoFi-Kleinode, "Crush Songs" just now, recorded the Yeah-Yeah-Yeahs-Chanteuse 2006 and 2007 in their own bedroom. Far away from the opulent sound of her main band, Karen O suffered through 14 pieces, some of which lasted only one or two minutes, but often had more expressiveness than many an epic show. That the singer didn't have an easy time one day can be heard on the tracks, which were initiated mostly with acoustic guitar. But when there is a punk grumbling like in "Body", the O shows itself once more rebellious and edgy.
