    3.5 Stars
    Brooklyn's Yeasayer are just as experimentally world-hugging as homeys like Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors, but they're also dedicated to pop grandeur on its own terms. Each Yeasayer record has been hookier than the last: Their 2007 debut was globetrotting freak rock; 2010's Odd Blood added hyped-up Eighties sheen. more at rollingstone.com

    Yeasayer Fragrant World [Secretly Canadian]

    Fragrant World kicks off with the electro-pop filled delight of “Fingers Never Bleed.” Definitely one of the standout tracks on the album. Along with the synth heavy, easy on the ears approachability of the album’s previously released singles “Longevity” and “Henrietta.” The band seems to be channeling a bit of Hot Chip on “Blue Paper” and “Devil And The Dead” with their simple electro-funk beat topped with Chris Keating’s whimsical delivery. While some of the genre bending tracks on the album might still be easy to follow, like the electro ’80s flavor of “Regan’s Skeleton,” and the funk-filled electro-pop twist of “Damaged Goods,” others might prove to be a bit too avant-garde for the average listener.

    Constantly testing their boundaries by experimenting with and tweaking their sound, just like a rebellious teenager, Yeasayer set out to prove with every new release that they can’t be so easily labeled. They do need to be careful how far they push, however. In the case of Yeasayer, having someone else take on the task of production might help ground the band and steer them to a much more clear direction. After all, most petulant teenagers benefit from a bit of guidance, someone to reign in all that rebellious energy.

    Tweet Anyone who knows "Kiss From A Rose" knows Seal's place in 90s music canon. Brooklyn band Yeasayer stopped by an Australian radio station a couple days ago to premiere a cover of his 1990 hit "Crazy", and damn it's good. The trade-off of earthy tamborine and carefree guitar for the original's outdated jazz-synth beats grounds and legitimizes Seal's lyrics with vocals that are pretty flawless, revealing a rather thoughtful song.

    Yeasayer put out a new song from what is the presumed follow-up to 20102s Odd Blood this week. "Henrietta" starts out with those familiar vocals in reggae adornment ( Ras Trent! ) before it shape-shifts into the ethereal refrain " Oh, Henrietta/ We can live on forever " that ends on the smoother, more meditative side of their psych-pop tendencies. Check it out below. more here

    Since last month's release of a new Yeasayer song , the Brooklyn psych-pop trio has announced their album along with new track "Longevity" today. This one hops and pops along a line of clicking glitches before reaching a chorus of steadier transmission that finds Chris Keating's melting vocal imploring you to " Live in the moment/ Never count on longevity " — the basis of a journey through swirling, trippy consciousness that eventually travels back to a hopefully more aware present existence. The band's third album Fragrant World is out August 20. more here
