for fans of: Grizzly Bear, TV on the Radio, Talking Heads

why you should check them out:
Brooklyn’s eclectic music scene has been the source of some of the most dynamic underground sounds coming out today, which must be why Yeasyer feels so right at home. The wildly inventive trio makes sophisticated pop music with a worldly influence and uncompromising originality.

background check:
Believe it or not, Yeasayer members Chris Keating and Anand Wilder got their start in A Capella. Back in high school, the two were members of Sic Transit, a barbershop quartet, before heading off to different colleges. After meeting up in Brooklyn, splitting their share of vocals, synths and guitars and joining up with Wilder’s cousin, bassist Ira Wolf Tuton, they formed the basis of Yeasayer. The group debuted in 2007 with their buzz worthy LP, All Our Cymbals.

The album was filled with uniquely psychedelic folk rock dabbling in electronics and tribal induced percussion. Over the course of festival appearances and tours backing up the likes of MGMT and Beck, Yeasayer honed their ever increasingly world sound. 2010 saw the release of their much anticipated sophomore album, Odd Blood (Secretly Canadian).

Expanding their earlier efforts, Odd Blood is a darkly danceable showcase of trippy acid rock, 80′s electro pop and a decidedly Middle Eastern groove. Recorded in Woodstock, New York, at the home of longtime Peter Gabriel drummer Jerry Marotta, the trio took advantage of their surroundings by employing vintage synths and instruments from around the world. Odd Blood is at once a genre bending experimental shift for Yeasayer, and one of this year’s most accessible and enjoyable albums thus far.
