Yeasayer
Posted Image
From Said The Gramophone

On the back of one song, Yeasayer have become my biggest discovery of the year so far. We all often hear music we like - catchy melodies, clasped lyrics. (I share such stuff with you here.) But the rarer feeling is to be exhilarated by something. To feel in a song a promise: the suggestion of a bigger, wider, longer song that's as yet unsung. Stepping into an empty street and smelling the pepper fragrance of a fire.

"2080" is Fleetwood Mac, Akron/Family, Paul Simon, Arcade Fire, Cree chant, schoolyard song. It's dancing alone under a streetlight, in your room with the lights on, or in a club on those hot strange first hours of the new year. It's a night garden. It's a pop song. It's soft rock, New Wave, and art music. It's got heart-thump drums, distant xylophone, clarinet, guitars, voices in harmony. It's got piano and backwards-playing tape. It's got the kitchen sink -- and all these things under starlight.

I haven't heard Yeasayer's (upcoming) album. I haven't seen them live. All I know is that "2080" is a string of good ideas, a necklace of a hundred rubies. It's weird and great and not like the work of any other band I can think of. There is something in its beauty & boldness that makes me very, very excited; like I've stung my finger on a rose-thorn.

Yeasayer are from Brooklyn and their debut is due later this year on Monitor Records. At SXSW they provided tambourine, dance moves & backup vocals at a Hanson gig. Now they're opening for Frog Eyes. I should not have to tell you to pay attention to a band cherished by both the creators of "MMMbop" and "One in Six Children Will Flee in Boats". I should not have to tell you, friends, but still I'm going to: PAY ATTENTION.


Agreed on everything. The above track review from Said The Gramophone is dead on the money. "2080" is truly like Peter Gabriel / Paul Simon + Animal Collective / Grizzly Bear. The rest of the tracks at their myspace are great as well. I also think fans of Skeletons might also dig this, though what I've heard of Yeasayer seems generally less obtuse...but no less awesome. Check it out...

I've only got the first two tracks so far, but this is sounding really good. Can definitely hear the "Peter Gabriel / Paul Simon + Animal Collective / Grizzly Bear" comparisons.

I'm seriously enjoying this - for some reason reminds me of smoking weed on the beach in summer during sunset.

Edit: Kudos to Cybrid for providing.

It's like, ethereal, man. Bit melancholy, bit joyful, bit psych-ish... love it. This makes up for Akron/Family's latest.

There's definitely something a bit lysergic about the album. At the moment the best songs are still the two they released as a single/EP ("2080" and "Sunrise")...but "Forgiveness" is becoming another favorite. I'm not sure why they didn't include "Final Path" on the album. It's a killer song. I think I still need a bit more time with the whole thing.
