Video Roundup: Summer Solstice

It doesn’t quite feel like it in Seattle — we’ve been alternating from jackets to tank tops, boots to sandals, all in the same day — but the Summer Solstice is this Saturday, June 21st! Due to the tilt of earth’s semi-axis on this day, it will be the longest period of daylight, perfect forRead more...

Album Review: The Music of Grand Theft Auto V, Vol. 1

The Grand Theft Auto video game series has never been a stranger to good music. Old school fans still cling to the 2002 Vice City entry for the precious Wave 103 radio station, where you can listen to Psychedelic Furs, Gary Numan, and Human League while running from the cops down a neon Miami-esque highway.Read more...

Friday Music News

Yeasayer submerged themselves into the mysterious world of science for their “Glass of the Microscope” video. It may seem like a very literal approach, but the colorful cells, natural history specimens, and random interpretive dancers take it to the next level. The band’s commitment to authenticity is also very commendable. They filmed the video atRead more...

Live Review: Yeasayer w/ Daughn Gibson @ Neptune Theater 8/30/12

Anyone whose seen Yeasayer live can attest to the awesome power of their onstage presence. Their Neptune Theater show last week was no exception. Complete with a ridiculously cool light and mirror setup behind them, Yeasayer threw down new and old tunes alike and gave everyone their money’s worth. And for those that have neverRead more...

Wednesday Music News

A little over a week after the release of their third LP A Fragrant World, Yeasayer has put out a video for the album’s track “Longevity.” Watch lead singer Chris Keating age quickly throughout the course of the song before devolving completely into an eyeless skeleton (highly reminiscent of Gus Fring’s final moments) in theRead more...

KEXP Suggests: Yeasayer @ Neptune Theatre 8/30

Although Yeasayer were first recognized for their shifting, psych-influenced soundtrack to the mid-2000s Brooklyn indie renaissance, it was their sophomore outing, the pop influenced Odd Blood, that helped the the Brooklyn band shake off the “Brooklyn band” tag. Two years later, the trio of Chris Keating, Anand Wilder, and Ira Wolf Tuton (along with touringRead more...

Out This Week 8/21

Brooklyn group Yeasayer top this week’s list of new releases as they continue down the path away from their initial indie-tribal leanings with, what our Music Director, Don Yates, calls “a darker and more adventurous take on the dance-friendly synth-pop of 2010’s Odd Blood, combining warped, buzzing synths, jittery rhythms, processed vocals and dystopian lyrics.”Read more...

Album Review: Yeasayer - Fragrant World

It’s tough being Yeasayer. Out of all the bands to spawn around the time of the “Brooklyn band” tag (and survive the initial onslaught of hype), they always seem to be overshadowed by their contemporaries. They haven’t broken out like Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, or Grizzly Bear have across the past two years and they’reRead more...
