yeasayer's odd blood.
oh oh oh. the new album by brooklyn-based yeasayer, odd blood, does not disappoint. it's definitely a departure from their previous release, 2007's all hour cymbals. it's a little bit more electronic, infusing middle-eastern sounds and a plethora of synth, feedback, vocal samples that in "love me girl," for example, sound like depeche mode's making an appearance. so amazing, really. i've listened to "ambling alp" several dozen times at this point, since i've had it for a while. but it's so great to have the rest of the album to give it some context now.
