Where the Wild Things Are, director Spike Jonze’s surreal vision of childhood angst, has inspired an equally weird but altogether more joyous work from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman. Assorted hums, hoots, and hollers unfold over imprecise folk-psych instrumentation, sounding very much like the racket that an acclaimed hipster musician’s inner grade-schooler might kick up. These are the sort of unruly sounds that encourage passive background listening, but be sure to pay attention to the handful of actual songs, which are often as memorable as anything Karen O’s primary band has done lately.
