A Charmingly Low-rent Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Digital copies of It's Blitz! go on sale tomorrow, but before you part with your coin, enjoy this video for "Zero," a celebratory slice of recession chic that also happens to showcase the new, synth-centered sound of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Director Barney Clay has Karen O and co. take to the streets and perform on the cheap: She dances on a Taurus, the band screws around with shopping carts, and, for a light show, someone flips the overheads on and off in a bodega. Lipstick and eyeliner probably had their own lines on the budget.
