Once a group of New York City punks unafraid to mess with a little rhythm, 2009 It’s Blitz! singles “Zero” and “Heads Will Roll” made the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! a favorite first at downtown dance parties and then (with the help of an irresistible A-Trak club edit of the latter) at proto-EDM festivals around the world. It’s a good look for the band, and one they seem to be running with, bringing in LCD Soundsystem and DFA Records head James Murphy to co-produce their forthcoming Mosquito. The lead single, “Sacrilege,” might not get festival spins from Benny Benassi and Afrojack, but that doesn’t mean we can’t move a little bit when the band plays it tonight.
