Crush Songs by Karen O
Yeah Yeah Yeahs iconic frontwoman Karen O's first solo record comes to you on a unique blue vinyl pressing. This collection of lo-fi, stripped down, acoustic songs from Karen are a totally new and unique glimpse of the artist. Tastefully rough around the edges.
Crush Songs is a charming collection of love songs that offer a deeper and more intimate insight into the rocker best known for fronting Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the past 15 years. It is her first full length solo release and features acoustic guitar prominently. The tracks are demo-like. They feel fleeting and ephemeral, like a photo that captures a very specific moment. The album also feels a bit like a concept album, tied closely to Karen's experience with love, crushes, and relationships.
Karen O is the radical rockstar that we all know and love from Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Cult Records is a relatively new label that was founded by The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas. He has released his own records under the label and now seems to be expanding the lineup.
