We thought a few more YYYs songs might leak by now, but the Internet seems satiated by the same three that've been up for the last week or so -- even though none of the tracks singled out in SFJ's New Yorker preview have surfaced. Maybe everyone's too busy downloading the Flaming Lips record. Whatever.
So we'll recap.
1. If you already heard the Diplo remix of "Gold Lion," the original is going . . . to . . . sound . . . really . . . really . . . slow.
2. It's almost not even worth mentioning that "Dudley," while totally failing at being any kind of great song, fulfills the eternal New York Underground promise of a younger, sexier Sonic Youth. The verses are totally Sister/Evol, and if you ever spent lazy Sundays fucked up on drugs and girls while spinning those records over and over, you're going to get lonely listening to this song. Warning you now. [Check these sites for more info.]
3. Call us crazy, but "Let Me Know" reminds us of Fuzzy, if they'd ever done an unplugged record. Translation, if you weren't living in Boston or listening to Lemonheads side projects in 1994: a song with a too-simple melody that sours sweetly on each new note.
