Noughties #57: Yeasayer "All Hour Cymbals" (We Are Free, 2007)

Yeasayer's debut album was all about fusion. With the crisp ingredients of folk, prog, new wave, world and middle eastern music they have stirred up a potent brew indeed - served up in the backroom venues of the reinvirogorated Brooklyn music scene that they share with the likes of Gang Gang Dance and Vampire Weekend. Thematically this is a wide eyed collection of songs, though these are not laid back hippy musings but vigourously luxurious pop experiments. - 2080 - wait for the wintertime - many waves
