Yeasayer – Odd Blood
I am always a fan of risk-taking and reinvention especially if it comes in the form of 80’s synth pop! Brooklyn band Yeasayer seems to have conquered all of that with the release of their sophomore album Odd Blood (officially out Feb 9) by exchanging a folky, psychedelic sound for some quality time with the dance floor. With an album full of trippy upbeat tracks, we can probably expect a lot of remixes coming our way this year as well. Recently, German producer MMMatthias took on the already phenomenal song “O.N.E.” without vocals and made it even better. And good news LA, if you envision yourself dancing to “O.N.E.” in a room full of taxidermy, Yeasayer will be playing First Fridays on Feb 5th at The Natural History Museum!
