Karen O

Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O recently announced that she'd release her first solo album, Crush Songs, on September 9 via Julian Casablancas' Cult Records, and she's now given us the first taste of the record. "Rapt" is under two minutes of bedroom singer/songwriter stuff with no more than her roughly recorded voice and a few guitar chords. Watch the video, directed by her husband Barney Clay with production by her Stop the Virgens collaborator KK Barrett, below.

Relationship comes in many form. However it also requires standards.

LOL @3:20 who will always be indebted to Ohio Public Radio for "hipping" him to YYYs which inspired him to move to Brooklyn

3:20 -- flawless is a biiiit of an overstatement. Fever to Tell is absolutely awesome though, I'll give you that. The rest, except Mosquito, have their moments.
