Riff: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “These Paths”

Apr 17, 2013

Take your piece of that star/Take your piece of it, kid/Take your piece or you’ll starve/Take your piece, take it, kid

from These Paths lyrics by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Recorded by TVotR‘s David Sitek, the YYYs play around with an ambient electronic departure from their already loose punk ethos, skewering a cryptic attack on fame, or lack-thereof, Karen O’s ‘these paths’ vocal swirled and chopped into a deceiving, meditative haunt; [LISTEN].
