Middle Eastern-Psych-Snap-Gospel

Despite Yeasayer’s debut album All Hour Cymbals (released November 2007) appearing towards the top of many best of 2007 lists it was not until the wonderful 2080 single started getting radio play in Australia that Bawley paid much attention to the experimental four piece from Brooklyn.

Since then our affection for Yeasayer has grown and grown, their take on the world music meets indie (or afro-beat) is in this writers opinion far superior to anything that has come from the massively hyped Vampire Weekend or Born Ruffians.

Go here to check out a brilliantly executed live set from Yeasayer, recorded on a chilly rooftop as part of the Don’t Look Down series.
