Karen O, of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Caught in the net: Totally wicked track with lots of bite

On Radio 1 this week, Yeah Yeah Yeahs unveiled “Sacrilege”, the first song from their April-released fourth album, Mosquito – their first LP in some four years. Whereas on their last effort, 2009's well-received It's Blitz!, the New York trio tuned their guitars, drums, synths and vocals to a more dance-oriented sound, on “Sacrilege” at least, they've moved their focus again. Here, on a song produced by Nick Launay and regular collaborator Dave Sitek, a big rock sound prevails with the high-pitched vocals of Karen O (pictured) augmented by a large chanting gospel choir. Hear the track streaming at yeahyeahyeahs.com.

Caught in the Net: Clogs show they've got plenty of sole

While Bryce Dessner (pictured) is best known as the guitarist with The National, he has long been cultivating himself in other directions too. An accomplished composer in his own right he also has had another band on the go for the last decade or so. Clogs, a project led by Dessner and Australian musician Padma Newsome make intricate songs and instrumentals with hints of avant garde experimentalism, art-rock, folk, classical and chamber pop. Their latest release arrived this week in the form The Sundown EP. It can be download from their Bandcamp for $3 at ind.pn/XJhf5F. The three-track EP is a gorgeous, quiet affair with delicate vocals from Newsome and folk elements coming to the fore.
