Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (2006 – present)

Yeasayer is a band based in Brooklyn, New York. The band was formed in 2006 and consists of three core members, Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder. They first came to attention after appearing at the SXSW festival in early 2007. Their debut album All Hour Cymbals was released in October 2007. Yeasayer described their music as “”. Live performances often include visuals.

Yeasayer released their second studio album, Odd Blood, in February 2010, featuring more music influences than earlier work. The band revealed that the album came out of a massive acid trip in New Zealand. Peter Gabriel’s drummer Jerry Marotta helped to record Odd Blood in an upstate New York studio packed with rare synths and percussion instruments from around the globe to create the characteristic sound of the album.

Yeasayer released their third studio album, Fragrant World, in August 2012. According to the Fingers Never Bleed Songfacts, it was named after a track that didn’t make the new album’s final cut.

    I can't think of a genre to house them in. I guess that is a compliment.

    Yeasayer can seriously do no wrong in my eyes. Obviously it's a matter of taste though so no need to bring up why this and why that. When I saw them live for the 4th time and was discussing their possible setlist with my friend I said, "Yeah, just TRY to disappoint me!" In other words, there was no song they could have included that I would be upset about (and obviously any exclusions were inevitable).

    Man, the more I listen to Fragrant World the more I like it. Maybe even more than ODD BLOOD now.

    Saw them at First Ave. It was one of the most energetic and enjoyable concerts I've ever been to. Can't wait for the new album.
