I was skeptical at first, but then I saw the following video of Yeasayer and was well adjusted. I’ve had them on my iPod for a while but never really registered the music with the name. Now I’ve had a good listen and can only recommend it.
This is a great studio performance from 2008, “Tightrope”
Another great song from the same session: “Wait For The Summer”
“Ambling Alp” from the upcoming Album “Odd Blood”
Yeasayer is a bit like a more flamboyant/folk version of Animal Collective, a George Michael on other drugs, or – as their myspace describes them – ‘Enya with BOUNCE’. The new album “Odd Blood” is set for release on Feb. 9th, 2010.
enjoy the psychedelics,
