Yeasayer

The music of Brooklyn's Yeasayer is an eclectic, genre-bending journey into pop, rock, Middle Eastern and African musics, folk, and dub. Vocalist/keyboardist Chris Keating and vocalist/guitarist Anand Wilder were both raised in Baltimore, where they honed their vocal skills in a barbershop quartet and played in a high-school band, Sic Transit, before leaving town to attend different colleges. Years later, the two relocated to New York and began shaping the project that would soon become Yeasayer. Wilder's cousin, Ira Wolf Tuton, joined as the group's bassist, and drummer Luke Fasano was the last member to climb aboard in May 2006.

The band set to work on recording its debut album, All Hour Cymbals, which was unveiled to much critical acclaim (not to mention a healthy blogosphere buzz) in October 2007. International tour dates and festival appearances followed, during which the band honed its blend of live instrumentation and prerecorded samples. When it came time to record a second album, Yeasayer traveled to Woodstock, New York, and rented out the country home of percussionist Jerry Marotta. With guests including Marotta taking over for Fasano on drums, the resulting Odd Blood appeared in early 2010 and showcased a different side of the band, with synthetic sounds and dance-inspired production playing a much larger role. Odd Blood proved even more successful than its predecessor in terms of album sales, and Yeasayer continued to tour internationally.

In the fall of 2011, work began on the group's third album, Fragrant World. A continuation of the murkier textures of Odd Blood, the album arrived in the summer of 2012 and featured guest appearances from string player Kishi Bashi and NOMO's Elliot Bergman. The live album Good Evening Washington D.C., Live at 9.30 Club appeared late in 2013. The band resurfaced early in 2016 with singles from its fourth long-player, Amen & Goodbye, released that spring. Still offering quirky sound explorations, core members Keating, Wilder, and Tuton were joined on the album by guests including Suzzy Roche of the Roches and guitarist Steve Marion aka Delicate Steve. It also featured production help from Joey Waronker of Atoms for Peace. ~ Kenyon Hopkin

I'm 47 and lived the 80's. This band is proof that music has not died, it just went away for awhile.

Quite Quite talented. Ira is very good on the bass and they all blend well together.

There is a symphonic quality to what I have heard so far. Layers of sound, that like a family that sometimes clash, but still also love each other and show themselves as a whole entity that works together. My metaphor may be flawed; but their music isn't. I think I will spread the word.

Agreed ;)
When we still had school I played "Sunrise" every morning.

Saw Yeasayer in concert in Seattle on 4/20/10 - best live show in a VERY long time. Small venue, close up and they totally, completely blew me away. If you get the chance - go see them!

Does anyone else feel like the vocals on "Sunrise" sound identical to the lead singer from Ghostland Observatory? It's almost uncanny...
