New Yeasayer

“Henrietta”, was posted online last week by We All Want Someone To Shout For. It is the latest song from Yeasayer, and was apparently sent in CD form to everyone on their mailing list. Give it a listen. I think the band has plenty of great material left in them, even after putting out two really great albums to launch their career.

Eyes That Light Up

So, to pick up where we left off on Monday here is one of my favorite bands of the last 5 years covering one of my favorite bands of all time and doing a pretty bad job of it! Where Yeasayer offered an impeccable version of Seal’s “Crazy”, MGMT struggle in this early performance to even offer a decent mock up of Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)” off their 1983 masterpiece Speaking in Tongues. Nonetheless, I still love it.
