Biography

Yeasayer's third album, Fragrant World, is a hulking beast of a record. Keyboards clank and wheeze, tiny claps stumble against busted drum machines, and there's very little obvious guitar. It's an album that grapples with the schizophrenia of the modern world by gathering piles of electronics and molding them into something huge and often gorgeous.

The latest thing is supposedly Indie Music informed by World Music and Yeasayer are perhaps the prime exponents of this trend. Looking back, there have been hybrids of this kind in the past - the Wedding Present's side project, The Ukrainians being a prime example. Then there were a host of bands in the early nineties who went a stage further and added dance music into the indie-world mix - the unfairly forgotten and utterly wonderful Transglobal Underground are a case in point.

Now come Yeasayer, Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective and Beirut amongst others. These artists follow the template to carying degrees with Beirut the least indie of all and Animal Collective providing only hints of non-Anglo sounds. Yeasayer, however, need to be congratulated for making a very good fist of attempting a brand new sound. The LP really is a difficult one to compare to anything else and if a few of the tracks take a while to get into, most hit the spot very well indeed. Prime amongst these is the fabulous "2080" - a lament for the planet which rings out over crystal clear production and is topped off with a marvellous multi-person chorus at the end. "All Hour Cymbals" is not showstoppingly good, but it's one of the most refreshing new albums released in 2007.

Format: Audio CD
World music has been infiltrated into other genres for some considerable time .George Harrison brought his love of Indian mysticism and culture into The Beatles and various bands down the years have done the same .Dance bands in the 1990,s especially seemed to cotton on how vibrant and exotic music could sound filtering in music from other cultures , so bands like Transglobal Underground and Loop Guru made some of the most essential music of that era and indeed continue to do so to this day. Then of course there is seminal work like Brian Eno and David Byrnes " My Life In the Bush Of Ghosts", Talking Heads "Remain In Light" , even Paul; Simons "Graceland".
Yeasayer is one of a number of bands from New York causing a bit of a buzz as I believe it's industry cool to say. Yeassayer though, doesn't just integrate world music with pop or rock or dance or whatever , he isn't that genre specific . Yeasayer chucks just about everything into the mix .There are elements of pop, rock , dance , funk , jazz and probably other stuff as well but it's most distinctive in the use of non-western music. The band list some of their influences as Cyndi Lauper, Leonard Cohen, Thomas Mapfumo and Popul Vuh but you could cheerfully add TV On The Radio or Arcade Fire onto that list.
So now I've got all that stuff about who it sounds like it's time to broach what the music sounds like. Gee....that's a more difficult proposition .If I said "2080" had a Beach Boys melody construed by African tribesman as the sun set on a sun baked plain would that help? Album opener "Sunrise" has an earthy gospel vibe allied to knuckle popping percussion and woozy handclaps. "Wait For The Summer" filters multi tracked vocals through chiming bells , zinging strings amid a ramshackle arrangement.

This is a great album, definitely worth buying, but they are an even better live band, and as others have said regarding their performance on Jools Holland this album actually fails to do them justice.

I love this album now. Bought after seeing on Jools Holland and some of the tracks were 'growers' rather than the immediacy of 2080 and Sunrise but now I'm totally hooked.

I also heard them on Jules Holland and bought the album as I just love this kind of melodic, flowing music. Great instrumentation, the vocals soar over the music and transport you. Recommended!

I saw Yeasayer on Jools Holland's Later where they played the outstanding 2080 and Sunrise and bought this album on the strength of it. And it's just wonderful. Album has almost no info about them, nor does their web-site.

If you've read the other reviews you'll see it how hard it is to describe what this band sounds like. I'm listening as I write this to No Need to Worry, which is very vaguely Beach Boys/Four Seasons but with a sinister , dark twist to it. There's bits of The Shins, touches of CSNY but I'm really stuck trying to work out what their influences are; really a truly original band.
