Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover The Diamond Sea

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
“Diamond Sea (Sonic Youth cover) ”

Unclear whose star's hitching whose wagon here: SY and YYY have been parading around like tabloid inamoratas lately, making out at stoplights, sharing milkshakes, co-headlining pool parties. Now they're fucking with covers. Bad idea if you ask me-- New York torch-passings mostly end in fire. Smartly, the Yeahs take the humble route, opting for lame strums and letting Karen O coo the chowder-thick guitar hook. She blows Thurston Moore's original vocal wide open, picking up on the song's discreet marching quality without drowning it in lugubriousness. A late, great boys-only bridge coaxes Endless Summer vibes from Nick Zinner's reverb-soused amp, with brushed snare scratches providing the obvious wave metaphor. I still prefer the Youth's quarter-hour wash cycle, but at least, as iTunes Music Store user Insane Harry Potter Fan!!! puts it, this take is "good to study to."

yeah its abit baffling considering all the songs in the SY back catalog that the yeahs yeah yeahs could choose from, this being soemwhat an unlikely choice... i think "Flower" would be an obvious one.

i can only imagine that steaming pile of crap.

i bet it's going to sound like venom attempting to cover battles, minus the cool sloppy mess and black makeup factors.

actually, i bet it's going to sound like when muse tried to cover "dracula mountain" by lightning bolt

you need to convert it to a non itunes tune. otherwise we have to pay for it:P

Alex's Trip 08.23.2006 05:41 PM

? You mean the yousendit thing didn't work?

EvdWee 08.23.2006 05:44 PM

it does, but we have to fill in a password from your account on which you probrably bought it when we want to play the file in itunes

Alex's Trip 08.23.2006 05:47 PM

I am converting it now...

EvdWee 08.23.2006 05:53 PM

Alex's Trip 08.23.2006 07:02 PM

Sorry it took so long, I had to go to the library for some homework. When I came back the conversion didn't work. Expect it up sometime tonight.

It took me forever to figure it out but here it is:

The Diamond Sea by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Here is what I did:

I put the song on my Ipod. I pluged that into my Guitarport using a 1/8 inch-1/4 inch converter. I recorded it 'live' using Cubase LE, and then converted that to MP3. Took me a while to figure it out, I was tired of trying to use programs because none of them worked.

Thanks Alex. Sounds good

Alex's Trip 08.23.2006 08:01 PM

No problem. I think the sound quality went down...

Alex's Trip 08.24.2006 12:01 AM

So did I upload that for nothing or what?

_tunic_ 08.24.2006 01:46 AM

Not at all! Thanks a lot. It ain't a bad cover, but it surely can't beat the original.
