Mosquito – Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Interscope)

Same ole same ole from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  Their fourth album is alright but a little too much on the ‘Meh Meh Mehs’.

Young Buffalo EP – Young Buffalo (Atlantic)

Oxford, MS indie rockers Young Buffalo make an awesome showing on their self-titled EP.  A massive sound is present despite the band’s having only two members, both of whom are great musicians and songwriters.  The vocals are great and the guitar work is very original.  If Young Buffalo keeps up the good work, they could make it big; their sound is very clean and professional in addition to being very accessible and enjoyable.  The only real “weak” track is k2, as all the others are exceptional, especially k3 and k4.
