Yeasayer have just released a video vignette for their song "Longevity," off of their upcoming album Fragrant World. The “Longevity” vignette was done by by Yoshi Sodeoka, a Japanese artist who's currently working in New York, and describes his work (in the third person) on his web site by saying "Sodeoka’s psychedelic video art—informed by his background as a painter, punk rocker, and electronic musician—is a dystopian clash of noise and beatitude." Sounds awesome. Then again, he's been involved with showing work with The Creators Project, London's Tate Britain, New York City's Deitch Projects, São Paulo’s Rojo Nova, Barcelona’s OFFF and the recently held Barcelona Festival (check out video performances from Sonar Festival here).
The Yeasayer vignette for “Longevity” builds on top their release of the song “Henrietta” last month, which you can listen to below. Both of the songs are from the upcoming Fragrant World album, which has a release date of Aug. 21/22 on Secretly Canadian. This will be their first album for Secretly Canadian, and is supported by a series of shows that play out through the Summer, including shows in both the U.S. and Canada. “Yeasayer have produced something that sounds foreign at first, but after a few studies is filled with the hooks the band is known for. This is not a dish of pop rocks like Odd Blood, instead Fragrant World is something much weirder and darker.” Now go see a show.
