Yeasayer - Odd Blood

Yeasayer (pronounced “yay-sayer” /’jeɪseɪ.ər/) is an experimental band based in Brooklyn, New York. Live performances sometimes include trippy, psychedelic visuals projected in the background.
The band members are Anand Wilder, Chris Keating, and Ira Wolf Tuton. They describe their music as “Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel”.

Yeasayer recently revealed in an interview with Pitchfork that they had finished their sophomore album and it would be released on February 9, 2010. On October 30th, 2009 Yeasayer revealed details for the first single release from “Odd Blood” entitled “Ambling Alp”. As of early December 2009 this album was leaked on the ‘net. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Yeasayer revealed that the album came out of a massive acid trip in New Zealand. Odd Blood is partially inspired by inventor Ray Kurzweil’s theory that computer intelligence will eventually supersede the human mind. Also, Peter Gabriel’s drummer Jerry Marotta helped record Odd Blood in an upstate New York studio packed with rare synths and percussion instruments from around the globe.
