The new Yeasayer album Fragrant World arrives next week via Secretly Canadian, and you can listen to a full album stream right now. Fragrant World was produced by Yeasayer, and is a new batch of songs from the band that they’ll be performing on the Yeasayer tour this Summer, in places like Nashville, Louisville and Kentucky. New songs mean that the shows provide an opportunity to see the new Yeasayer songs molded into their ongoing versions right in front of your very eyes. “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,” reads the press release for Fragrant World.
"it can be hard to tell where organic sounds end and electronic wizardry begins — a fitting mystery for a band so preoccupied with humanity's ever-shifting place in the modern world. From the opening seconds of "Fingers Never Bleed" on, its worldview is fully realized, as a stormily off-kilter arrangement induces an immediate sense of woozy foreboding," said NPR Music.
