I know, the title has probably been used a zillion times. Today I discovered Yeasayer via this video on Vimeo. The video is sweet, though NSFW due to nakedness. I found it on Peanut Butter Pillow, which a consistent source of interesting bits and bobs. I think I discovered that via a tweet from the inimitable Jeph Jacques of QC fame some months ago. Listened to a bunch more of their stuff on Grooveshark while making Valentine’s cookies this evening and it was all awesome. According the their Wikipedia page they describe themselves as “Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel”, which is an accurate, though perhaps useless, description.
Also, this may be the linkiest post I’ve ever posted.
