Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Maps” Reaction

Community Rating0 Votes

Alright, so this one isn’t new… But, the recording is!

Looks like Spotify have convinced yet another solid band to record at their studio. The result is subtle, and awesome.

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s had me at “Gold Lion” way back when. Teen me was taken in by their pop rock sound and standout style. Current me is nostalgic.

This fresh recording of “Maps” takes the original a step further with a special kind of elegance. It’s dreamy and intense, it’s what it was before with a little more.

There’s fresh rhythm to this version, little touches that can only come from a decade of playing a song. It shifts where it should and returns right on time. The band has mastered it and molded it into something amazing.

Dhanya's take on Eastern sounds is experimental and atmospheric. Solid track with loads to love for any and all Bjork fans.
East Forest - "Cairn" | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
East Forest floods the senses in "Cairn" - soothing the heart and challenging the mind, building on its meditative theme with admirable sophistication. Sweet song all the way.
BJ Wilbanks - Don't Fight the Feelin'
BJ's single, "Don't Fight the Feelin" is a testament to true soul. It's funky, it's authentic and it's really, really retro. You can't argue with the classics!

“Made off
Don’t stray
My kind’s your kind
I’ll stay the same
Pack up
Don’t stray”

Everything builds so smoothly… It’s what it always ought to have been and hasn’t lost itself in so many years, which quite a feat.

This recording sounds like a live take and it’s top notch. There’s energy to it that wasn’t present in the original. Restraint bleeds over into each verse until the blossoming ending.

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s recorded more than “Maps” with Spotify, so I’ll be digging in for sure – refreshing and re-whetting my appetite. Check them out!
