Who: Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the main stage In 3 or Fewer Words: Yeah, well, maybe? Memorable Because: Watching Karen O croon "Maps" never gets old. For the rest of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs set… well, some of their songs are starting to get liver spots. Previous festival appearances by New York rockers played for fun in the sun with dance-friendly numbers, but last night they went for a more protracted, psychedelic sound. It was a nice complement to Coachella's neon-freakshow night scene, but ultimately unmemorable when compared to the Yeah more here
Yeah Yeah Yeahs: "Sacrilege"
"Maps" celebrates its 10th birthday this year, so it's worth remembering how long Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been working the same M.O.: temporarily stun listeners with an overt pop maneuver, subvert expectations, and come out on the other end making it look like the right move after all. But it would be a huge understatement to say "Sacrilege" merely ups the ante from the slick, direct, and very underrated Show Your Bones or the glitz of It's Blitz : this is going all in during a game of strip poker, and their brazen challenge is admirable.

Chalk one up for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs — the NYC trio have found a way to gracefully marry gospel and indie-rock. Their new song "Sacrilege" is a nervy, vintage-sounding burner that suggests Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase have gotten some kind of religion. It's one of the new tunes on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' forthcoming fourth album "Mosquito" (due April 16), and if nothing else it displays the brash confidence of a band unafraid to go its own way. Can we get a chorus of "amens?" Amen. ||| Stream: more here
