New album should be pretty awesome. The first two singles are very good (especially Longevity).

Not sure if this is the whole thing, but it's been excellent so far:

I stripped all the audio streams from the videos for the complete album, let me know if you guys want it (it's holding me over until a proper rip).

100% it's sourced from the Youtube videos. If it's not AAC / M4A it's a transcode (Files are ~192kbps).

I'm a notorious pirate, but Yeasayer is so good I bought the album. So far Blue Paper is my favorite. Henrietta and Longetivity are tied for second place. I don't know if this album beats out Odd Blood though, that was such a good one.

There doesn't seem to be much talk about Fragrant World on this forum - either here or in the album's own thread in the New Release Ratings forum (3 votes, one response). Frankly, I wasn't impressed when I first heard two of the songs on the radio prior to the album's release. I only heard each once, and didn't really get them (I don't remember which they were). But being a fan, I downloaded the album when it was released and it pretty much blew me away from the get-go. There was this weird feeling I had about it...like the tracks were mechanical and could keep growing and growing with each listen. And they did! The kind of feeling I get when listening to great IDM music, for example. It's not immediately accessible but there's something very intriguing and you know you'll be rewarded soon. They had a great amount of pop appeal while also having the right amount of screwiness and destruction that appeals to me most. I have liked each album by Yeasayer, but always felt they were pretty inconsistent. I read P4K's review prior to listening, which pretty much bashes the album and calls it their least consistent. Not that I ever take their reviews seriously (on the contrary), but imagine my surprise when I hear the album, really like it on the first pass, and realize immediately that it's more consistent than their past efforts. P4K, WTF are you smoking? It's unfortunate that their review probably had a serious effect on people's perceptions of the album, or interest in even listening to it. Oh well whatever, it's one of my top albums of the year. The tracks "Reagan's Skeleton" and "Folk Hero Shtick" are my favorites. They just took it to a whole other level from their other albums.

What I really came here to post was not just a reminder that you should listen to this album, but also draw your attention to the awesome psychedelic videos that the band has offered up for the entire album. I haven't watched all of them, just the ones for the two tracks I mentioned above and maybe one other, but holy **** do I LOVE THE STYLE of these videos and they really go perfectly with how I imagine many of the tracks sounding. Here are just a few to draw attention to the ones I like most stylistically:

Yep, it's by far their best album (the P4K review goes on to rip "Rome", which was one of the best parts of their last album, so I took their opinion with salt).

My favorite tracks are Fingers Never Bleed, Devil and the Deed & Reagan's Skeleton.

LOVE Fingers Never Bleed. It's an awesome opening track.

New track is great. I didn't even know the album was coming until this.
