I’m not totally convinced I’m a full-on Yeasayer fan (as I often can’t get over the lead vocals), but I just can’t stop listening to their latest single, “O.N.E.” Not only is it catchy as hell, but it combines some really unique sounds and rhythmic textures. Their new album, Odd Blood, comes out on Feb 9., and they’re currently streaming it in its entirety over on their MySpace page in the lead-up to official release.

Yeasayer has also mapped out sizable Winter/Spring tour, hitting NY and LA for the album launch and then heading out for the long haul throughout Europe and North America. I’d definitely be curious to see how this sound translates to the live show.

Any strong opinions on the Yeasayer live show?

    Dude…remember me in 2008? I saw them 6 times…lol.

    And the answer is — they’re a must see band live. I like them better live than I like their albums…

    Iam hooked on this band also….great live act. Saw them first night at South by Southwest as part of showcase…and then ended up following them around Austin. What I have heard of new album is great and looking forward to seeing them this year, unfortunately, not until Webster Hall.

    Just saw them for their album release party and it was a very solid hour and a half show. They have a great live sound that blows their album production away. Also, they have a great range of music. Funky dance songs followed by psychedelic rock going into soothing harmonized ballads. For a band with only 2 albums of material their show is an impressive journey. IMO they are like TV on the Radio, but actually pull it off live.

    Go see them, this band is gonna have a break-out year.
