Yes, I know… REAL late to the game on this one. Sorry I wasn’t up to the minute on my SXSW coverage…
Saw this on my friend Katie’s Facebook page and thought it was something to take a look at.
The band is called Yeasayer. They’re from Brooklyn, and they’re unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. I mean, the best way to put this (and I’ve seen them compared to this in other reviews) is that they sorta sound like the Talking Heads.. except a bit more grandiose. Check out their Myspace or website and then watch the following videos of the band on a Subway in Paris. Tremendous stuff.
They’re playing Logan Square Auditorium on April 16. I think I’m going. Any interested parties?
