About this album

Odd Blood is the self-produced second studio album by band Yeasayer. Recorded in the state of New York during 2009, it was released on February 8, in Europe and a day later in North America, with Secretly Canadian as the primary label. Odd Blood received largely positive reviews from critics. Praise centered on its cohesive merging of genres, especially the rhythms.

Backed by a new good-sized independent label, Secretly Canadian, and a bigger recording budget, Yeasayer started work on a second studio album in February 2009. According to a Rolling Stone article, Odd Blood was inspired by a trip to New Zealand, where Yeasayer experimented with LSD.

On October 30, the band made a new track, Ambling Alp, available for free online streaming and confirmed the Odd Blood track list and release details for 2010.

Although the record was slated for release on 9 Feb 10, it was leaked to the Internet on 11 Dec 09.

    "The stretch from The Children to Grizelda is, in and of itself, a minor masterpiece." - fixed that for you. Also, Odd Blood is amazing. So is All Hour Cymbals.

    The stretch from Ambling Alp to O.N.E. is, in and of itself, a minor masterpiece. [2]

    I get the feeling that whichever Yeasayer album you listen to first becomes your favorite. For me, it's odd blood. This is the best album of the year.

    It's not 31/12 yet but this album will probably take the number 1 position on my list of best albums of the year...
