Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Saying OK to Yeasayer

Yeasayer : All Hour Cymbals [We Are Free, 2007]

Brooklyn can be found all over this. TVOTR can be found all over this. Animal Collective, and Grizzly Bear, and yes, Clap Your Hands can all be found all over this. Have we heard this music before….kind of. Sort of… but I’m still listening, and I’m still interested….

Yeasayer’s debut disc, All Hour Cymbals is an exercise on the eardrums. With layers and layers of sonical landscapes, pierced by vocal harmonies reminiscent of some of the Beach Boys’ twisted, experimental harmonics, the Radio City 4-piece reaches hard to employ every blip, every knob turn, every Middle Eastern-Peter Gabriel worldbeat rhythm. I’m enjoying every minute of it.
