Yeasayer
Odd Blood
8/10

Danced to by white girls, adored by Germans, inspiring to mankind.  Following their previous album, All Hour Cymbals, comes Yeasayer’s newest release, Odd Blood, as they kick off their tour playing recently at the Guggenheim in NY and the Natural History Museum in LA. The album is messy sound, indie vocals, and clear dance beats laced with a funk-filled psychedelic blending of ambient melodies.  You can hear the band’s self claimed gospel roots that emerge to take form of a spirit elevating primordial world-music vision quest. The pronouncedly mechanical synth sounds pair with oddly sentimental love songs, a strong 80’s throwback and an upbeat message giving the album an approachable appeal you might not expect without being overpoweringly experimental.
