Yes, surprisingly, I don't think they have a thread. Definitely one of my favoritest bands.

Yeasayer has a new song out, "Henrietta." It's a simple but beautiful 2-parter. Lots of replay value. They seem to be continuing their sound from Odd Blood, which is a huge relief and very exciting.

Below is the email I received today with the link to the song...




Hello Dear FRIENDS.

It has been some time since we communicated using e-----mail...we hope you are living well.

You might be unaware, but recently we snail mailed 200 random people on our mailing list a compact disc of our new song "Henrietta."  We wanted you, the people who have supported us, the chance to hear and spread the new song first before the press got the track.  In other words, we wanted to give you "firsties."  Though it's seeped it's way through the internet, we wanted to make sure you had a link to get a high quality version of "Henrietta:" 

HENRIETTA:  http://yeasayer.net/henrietta-fans.html

Called a "soft launch" in the industry, the release of "Henrietta" initializes the beginning of Phase 3, as in full length #3.  We are about to make an announcement tomorrow morning (NYC time) through the major press receptors who will relay the information to the masses.  Please be ready for this offering and spread the information.  Your support has built this ship!

More news soon on various amazing things as we rev up the engines. 

As always, much love.

x.  Yeasayer.

I realized that link might not be working for everyone, so here's one that will.

The song's really growing on me.

I loved Odd Blood, very excited to hear new stuff from them. Just heard they are coming to Buffalo August 1st, which is awesome for several reasons.  One: it's a Yeasayer show, Two: shows like that used to not come here. 

Love the outro.

Eh I should stop listening. Some of those are super low quality versions.

So, it's out today.

This is the problem with releasing your 2 best songs well ahead of the album. The album is disappointing. Admittedly I'm measuring it against Odd Blood, and it's unfair to measure most things against Odd Blood. But so far I feel like there are 2-3 stinkers and a moderate helping of meh. We'll see if any of them are growers, I guess.

My favorites right now:

1. Henrietta
2. Longevity
3. Folk Hero Schtick
4. Glass of the Microscope
5. Devil and the Deed

I really enjoyed the new songs at the show, but on the album they're just kind of... stagnant.

Reagan's Skeleton brought the house down, on the album it sounds like a mid tempo jock jam.
