Download: The Very Best – ‘Ambling Alp’ (Yeasyer overdub)

yeasayer

Like in the case of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and “Boyz” orVampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, the smashing simple of the year’s first quarter, Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp”,  has been turned 180 degrees by The Very Best who left their distinct electro-funk imprint on it. The original vocals have been scrapped altogether and replaced by Esau Mwamwaya’s indescifrable lyrics, but which still retain the song’s jovial, up-beat spirit. Granted, it’s a wonderful reinterpretation that will definitely…

At the beginning of the month, I was simply psyched by Yeasayer’s new song “Ambling Alp”, off the band’s upcoming 2010 new album “Odd Blood.” Back then I said “The song, as a whole, makes for an incredible uplifting experience, packed with memerising electro beats and a bright pulsating rhythm. So far, it seems a lot more sharper, defined and focused than anything on their debut, which can only make me wonder what gems I…

The hunger for more  fueled by that little news piece, might have irritated a lot of you, but today we’ve got a special treat.

Yeasayer reveal new album details

Yeasayer

I simply loved Yeasayer’s 2007 debut, “All Hour Cymbals”, an album that shines of an epic, out worldly atmosphere – a world where sludgy metal textures, gospel, a capella and liberal doses of electronic psych-rock mania reign undisturbed. As a result of their well received debut, the Brooklyn band was signed by Secretly Canadian for their upcoming sophomore effort, details of which were just recently finally announced. The new Yeasayer album is titled “Odd Blood”…

New Yeasayer video: ‘Wait For The Summer’ + ‘2080 (live on Late Night with Conan)’

Brooklyn based experimentalists Yeasayer just released a gorgeous animated video for “Wait for the Summer,” not for the original version you might be familiar with from All Hour Cymbals, but a re-recording for an upcoming UK single. The video was directed by the Mixtape Club, who some of you may recall as the dudes that brought you TV on the Radio’s Me-I. Brilliant video. Also the band were featured on the Late Night with Conan…
