Yeasayer "2080"

Yeasayer "2080"
"We live in Brooklyn, NYC. We do harmonies. Dancing. Rituals. Baltimore. Philly. We will be putting out our debut with Monitor records in the early fall. It will be very exciting for everyone involved."

If "2080" is any indication of what's to come for Yeasayer's forthcoming debut full-length, then it will very exciting for more than just everyone involved (actually three other tracks are on their MySpace page, and you better believe they live up to this). Sprinkles of aural fairy dust smother the psych and folk leanings to ensure that this foursome's harmonious vocal love-in don't fall victim to, well, being pigeonholed as something as narrow and ridiculous as freak folk. Multifarious but ridiculously catchy, in a nutshell they're as simple or as complex as Animal Collective going a full year on a strict diet of Fleetwood Mac and Genesis while holing themselves up in a Sunday School (yep, kids come join in towards the end to add some icing to the cake). "2080" casts a spell and I am completely under it. If and when they start a cult, I'll be there at the front of the line to drink the damn Kool Aid.
