Editorial Reviews

Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2007 debut All Hour Cymbals, Yeasayer has been around the world and back again. While their first record was conceived in total artistic isolation, constant touring forced Yeasayer to finally engage with their contemporaries. If All Hour Cymbals was Yeasayer's attempt at global and ambient cultural mash-up then their new album, ODD BLOOD, takes place in an off-world colony sometime after the Singularity. Glimmering reverb haze is eschewed and replaced by a cavalcade of disorienting pitch effects and flickering ectoplasmic wisps.

Format: MP3 Music
US trio Yeasayer are musical magpies, cut from the same colourful cloth as acts like MGMT or Santogold. "Odd Blood" is their sophomore disc, comprising catchy jittery electronic Pop with a myriad of influences.

The woozy "Strange Reunions" has a Middle Eastern feel as does "Madder Red" (with a hummed wordless chorus), while the psychedelic clap-filled ballad "I Remember" is remniscent of "Animal Collective". At 10 tracks, no two songs are alike. Their debut CD was beautifully fractured psychedelic Folk/Pop, and they retain their strong sense of melody despite the change in style.

Other standouts are the Radiohead-style "The Children" (with eerie vocodered vocals and clanking beats), the tribal-sounding "O.N.E.", the progressively trancey "Love Me Girl" (my favourite), the bouncy "Rome" with stabbing syths & the experimental ballad "Grizelda".

Otherworldly and highly infectious!

Yeasayer's newest album certainly caught me off guard. I only listened to their 2007 debut once and was pretty bored with it. But after hearing the singles, "Ambling Alp" and "O.N.E." and reading positive critical reviews, I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. Odd Blood turns out to be a truly awesome sophomore effort from these indie rock innovators. It is an album that may be labeled as indie rock, but actually transcends that genre to become a truly terrific pop record.

The band's songs seem to be a patchwork of several differnt sounds and styles. There is psychedelic folk, electronica, dance, world music, pop and rock among others. Yet this is no mere mash up of various styles for sheer experimentation. Yeasayer blend these different threads together to weave a cohesive tapestry that sounds familiar yet original and fresh at the same time.

But what really sets Yeasayer apart from the pack is their ability to write good songs. They could have just played around with their various influences and released an album full of sonic concoctions that were nothing but noise. Instead, these guys have written an album's worth of stellar songs. There are hooks and melodies aplenty, but the lyrics are emotionally resonant as well. In Ambling Alp, there is a passionate cry to "raise your head and wear your wounds with pride". I Remember delivers the lyric "you're stuck in my mind all the time", and on O.N.E., Chris Keating sings, "You don't love me anymore, and I'm glad that you don't, 'cause I can't have you anymore" set to a melody that Peter, Bjorn and John would have killed to come up with.

What more can you ask for from an album? Great songs, innovative sounds and emotional depth. It all coalesces into a marvelously enthralling indie rock/pop gem that grows richer and more satisfying with each listen and will be on the short list for the best albums of 2010.

This is totally new wave. It's just remarkable. Yeasayer blew my mind with their first album. Literally. I could not think for an hour, just trying to realize what I just listened to. This one is a little more clear. It's totally Eighties pop music. It's just groovy and new-wavey.

Let's get to the really good songs. I loved "O.N.E.," because it was just something you could make a hit record out of. Forget Ke$ha, who should never have stayed at #1 for that long, and listen to real pop should-be hitmakers.

"Ambling Alp" was also just as good. A highlight here, with such beautiful sounds and lyrics.

"Madder Red" was pretty weird, but really good.

Among other highlights on this masterpiece are "I remember," "Rome," and the awesome "Love Me Girl."

In conclusion, buy this album or I will put a bumper sticker on your car saying "I don't listen to real music. I suck and have no life in the real world. I am stuck in what's popular and not what's good."

I was a late comer (last summer) to "All Hour Cymbals" but I love that album and was really looking forward to this one. I have been desperately trying to like it since Tuesday and I have to be honest: this is nothing like the previous album and a huge disappointment. There are some catchy songs, but I cannot name one that comes close to having the staying power of nearly every song from the previous album. Worse still, I find about half the album just bad. I have no doubt it will appeal to a broader audience as much of it is probably pretty danceable and hummable, but it does not capture the subtle almost Sung Tongish grace of much of previous album. While "Cymbals" was reserved, subtle, catchy and beautiful, this is up front, in your face and sounds like it was produced for Top 40 radio play (I say that more in feeling rather than as a general judgment of the bands purpose).

I know musicians progress and often that progression leaves us yearning for the old while we learn to appreciate the nuances of the new, but in this case Yeasayer has progressed in a direction that I just cant get into.

This is it! This is the new direction of music. Brooklyn, NY is the hotbed of music these days and Yeasayer is leading the pack in my opinion. The Brooklyn sound fuses an electronic sound that harks back to the 80s with a modern twist of great songwriting. You can easily tell that all the members in Yeasayer are highly skilled musicians and they know how to use their skills in effective songwriting techniques. Most importantly, the songs are catchy and don't require many listens before they creep into your brain and settle in. What a great band. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
