Yeah Yeah Boy Boy

YEAH YEAH YEAHS TO RELEASE ALBUM EARLY
In the wake of the leak of their latest masterpiece It's Blitz, NY art-rockers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have decided to release the digital version of the LP next week on March 10th. Here's the word from the source:

"The cat's out of the bag after IT'S BLITZ! escaped from our clutches into the big bad world last week. Why should some have and some have-not?

IT'S BLITZ! OFFICIAL NEW RELEASE DATES:

DIGITAL WORLDWIDE MARCH 9TH , US MARCH 10TH.

IN STORES US MARCH 31ST, WORLDWIDE APRIL 6TH.

YYYs have been brimming with nervous excitement in anticipation of releasing this record to the world! Leaks are NO FUN but it's out of our hands. Can't help but ask ourselves, "What would the PHILOSOPHER do in times such as these?" We now present PART II of the SNAKESWEAT TRILOGY, Mr. Brian Chase soothing our troubled souls in THE PHILOSOPHER. LUV YYYs
 "

So there you have it folks! Personally, we're waiting to get our hands on the vinyl, mwaha! Here's a few more tracks to listen to and Pt. deux of the Snakesweat Trilogy below.

NEW BAND CHEER: LISSY TRULLIE
First heard about this band in the latest issue of Spin, but leave it to us you Cannibal Cheerleader faithful to reveal the sheer New York circa 2001 awesomeness that is Lissy Trullie, a band snaking outta Brooklyn with a Strokes-ish sound that simply sublime. Seriously, we can't speak highly enough about this band so I'll offer an anecdote about Lissy Trullie (lead singer and namesake of the four-piece), whose Casablancas-bored meets Brody Dalle-deep voice causes swoons in mid-20s Southern males.

Growing up in East Texas sucks, especially if you're an indie rock fan who was never much for Staind. Cue 2001, the Strokes drops Is This It? and you introduce all your friends and everyone you meet to what you think is like the greatest band you've ever heard (remember, this is before we were super into Napster, etc, so cut our ignorant little asses some slack and appreciate the kitsch). Suddenly your rolled-up jeans are the fashion-statement of the school, you grow your hair nasty and long and everyone starts to get it, that this barely-held-together brand of garage rock is as killer as anything else on the radio.
That is Lissy Trullie in 2009. Hopefully someone in Nowhere, West Louisiana reads this blog and benefits from us. You're welcome. Check it below.

Fortunately for you John B., someone from New Orleans, Louisiana (which F.Y.I. is neither nowhere nor west) stumbled upon your recommendation. I am a huge fan of The Strokes, so I decided to give Lissie Trullie a listen. Not bad, not bad at all.
