Recently, I've been digging live acoustic performances, so last week when I had a chance to listen to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs doing the AOL Interface podcast, it was such a delight to hear Karen O getting stripped down with her usual rocking sounds and just sat down chirping pretty. They were really lazy, like, only performing 3 songs then the rest is interviewing, but the whole sessions was stellar. I never really got into 'Cheated Hearts' before, but this acoustic version was so amazing it made me fall in love with the song instantly. There's also 'Turn Into', one of their best songs to date, and a cover of The Rentals,'The Love I'm Searching For'. I post them all here for your listening pleasure, along with a bonus acoustic version of 'Maps'. Enjoy!
