    Default Love for Yeasayer

    I think this is now the band I am most looking forward to seeing. Fucking love "Odd Blood", "All Hour Cymbals" is great but loving the new one a bit more.

    I pray they are not in the gobi after 1pm and before 6pm

    I have a feeling that between Yeasayer, Fever Ray, Them Crooked Vultures, The Specials, Grizzly Bear and Jay-Z being on my must see list, friday is going to be very painful/awesome... kinda like rough sex.

    Pitchforks review of Odd Blodd BLOWS!

    Even though they usually do, I thought they'd give them more credit
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Nocturnal Wonderland Saturday, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl, Festival Supreme, Coachella 2015

    Actually, the pitchfork review of Odd Blood is basically what I thought of it after one or two listens. However, it has grown on me significantly and I would give the album much more credit now.

    Remember, they only gave All Hours Cymbals a 7.8. I bet you anything if the reviewer could go back now, they would give the album a high 8. Yeasayer albums appear to be growers.

    I have listened to All Hour Cymbals more and it is growing on me. Actually I didnt like Odd Blood at first either, but then songs got stuck in my head like Love Me Girl. (I am guessing they open with that song)

    I agree with P4K about half the time and I agree with them when they said the album kind of gets derailed in the second half. However there are still a handful of amazing songs on Odd Blood and I am really excited to see them.

    I heard one Yeasayer song about a year ago. I don't remember the name of the song, and I don't remember how it went, but I remember I was impressed. So I just purchased Odd Blood on a whim. Three songs in and I'm loving it.

    THIS. I listened to the album a few times and then put it in my car. After like four days, my entire opinion of it changed.

    So i went and found a copy this weekend...... well hello 80's New Wave!

    Im on my 4th go all the way through, it flows alot better than AHC, but my favorite tracks still remain on that album. I played it for the first time w/ a group that didnt much care for it, but the second and third time ive been by myself and its a grower for shizzle...

    "Inspired by the New Zealand LSD experience, the group's new record is a dizzying, hyperdetailed mix of heady prog-rock, New Wave hooks and electro-tribal grooves."

    R.S. Mag Iss 1098

    if u havnt read the article its a quick jump into who they are, what theyve been doing, but more so whats going on now... i cant believe i just supported that damn mag but they do get it right sometimes.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    I tried 'em on a few years ago, and it didn't take. Saw them on TV the other day... there's a certain level of projected hipness that makes the music less interesting.

    I'll still try to catch 'em if there's not a conflict, but I won't be surprised if I leave feeling like they just need another latte and six years of graduate school midtown.

    Yeah, so? That's what, one persons opinion that gets published and read a lot?

    It does however, suck a big one. They're sort of dead to me after what they did with Odd Blood. That was a very short lived love. All Hour Cymbals will always be awesome but shit..

    I like the new album a good bit. I will be disappointed if they drop "Wait for the Summer" from their setlists, to me that's their best song by far.

    Have they not been playing it live recently? If so, that would be a major shame. It is incredible live. I love this version...

    Funny. The first time I had ever heard them was on the Lolla 08 Webcast, I tuned in just as Yeasayer were starting. They opened up with "Ambling Alp" and it absolutely floored me. I was extremely disapointed when I found out there wasn't a recorded version of the song at that point. When they first released "Ambling Alp" as a single I was extremely pleased about how it sounded. And I still am. I would argue it may even be their best live song. The bassist blows me away in that song.

    I have no idea what they've been playing live and what they haven't, I'm just saying it would be a travesty if they dropped that one.

    Woh... ALL of Odd Blood? Crazy. No Forgiveness or (Red Cave) makes me a sad Panda.

    Actually, only 3 songs off of All Hours Cymbals? That is disapointing.
