With both bands being from NY I bet it's a common association. Yeasayer is alot more structured but I think there are some similarities to Animal Collective's sound in 'Forgiveness', 'Waves' and alittle with 'Worms'. Both bands are pretty different overall tho.

Yes, I've been meaning to bump this thread for a while. I came across All Hour Cymbals a couple of months ago and I'm quite pissed that it took me so long to find it. Easily one of the better releases from 08

Did anyone else go to Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend? Yeasayer totally KILLED it. I didn't have my camera on me BUT I managed to find some wicked shots from the set. If anyone has any more please send them my way

The new album leaked. They've changed their sound pretty radically, totally pop-ed it up (which I certainly don't object to). I likes....(:

I'm curious what I'll think of it. I like the first but there are really only about 3 songs that I really like, the others being just ok. So the new album could go either way for me. As always, I'll wait for release to check it out.

Yeah, the first few songs are really good but then...hmm...the music is great but his singing style doesn't really fit with the...beat (yes, they have a few dance songs on it). They definitely pulled a The rapture on the sophomore...I don't think I'll like it as much as the debut but it's early days. I imagine it'll put a lot of people off...

The first track on Odd Blood is so misleading. It got me all hyped up for an acid trip of an album and then the whole thing proceeded to get mega poppy, which is fine, but fuck did I get excited after hearing that track. Album was pretty damn good, but I won't put it ahead of their debut.
