149141yyysjpegThis past week there were leaks of Neko Case’s Middle Cyclone, Akron/Family’s Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free and Lady Sovereign’s Jigsaw, but the leak of the week is undoubtedly the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ It’s Blitz!

This is the third full album from the NYC band and is a welcomed departure from their dance-pop sound.  With the addition of synthesizers, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have created a darker tone while keeping their music upbeat.  The album is pretty incredible from start to finish, with songs that linger long after they’ve played through.

Highlights include “Zero,” “Soft Shock” and “Hysteric” but I’m sure everyone will find something to like.

It’s Blitz! is due legally via Interscope on April 13, 2009.  This is a must-listen album.
