Female Fronted: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever to Tell (w/ Sarah MacDonald)

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

Other podcasts don’t love you like we love you. In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by culture writer Sarah MacDonald ( to discuss the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s 2003 debut album Fever to Tell. Karen O features heavily in Lizzy Goodman’s Meet Me In The Bathroom, an exploration of the early-2000s New York rock scene, and for good reason: not only is she unspeakably cool, she is, as Sarah once wrote, indie rock’s beating heart. Find out more about the importance of Karen O as a female presence in the genre’s renaissance, Maps’ legacy as one of the best love songs of all-time, and why you can’t trust someone with a fauxhawk on this week’s podcast.
