Yeasayer have made a sufficient pop album in the same way that Pizza Hut makes a sufficient meal. But the closer you squint at each piece of the recipe, the more saccharine and processed you realize those parts are. Less than three minutes go by before a hard stop, which is a relief as much as it is a hindrance to the songs staying power.
Now, the psych pop veterans have formally and finally announced the album on which that single is set to appear. Hear both below. Pre-orders for Erotic Reruns are ongoing.

The album was created on a limited budget; it was supposedly recorded almost entirely with a ReVox tape recorder, a borrowed Roland drum machine belonging to Kit Haina small, preset Roland bass synthesizer, and an NED Synclavierbelonging to producer Mike Thorne. Reviews for the album were mixed. Aggressively embarrassing, Cabaret is the brashest, most brilliant and least-caring indictment of pop music's bankruptcy I've ever heard.
Or browse results titled :. Yeasayer Brooklyn, New York. But really, this is Yeasayer distilling all their strengths, while paring them to their essence.
Did I mention they were from Brooklyn? Do I need to mention they were from Brooklyn? Whatever they may have lacked in originality they made up for with creativity, and their records were so generous with leftfield surprises that you could forget how of-the-moment they were.
Fusing pristine electro-pop accessibility with subtle experimentalism, this fifth LP finds the New York trio flexing familiar style-flitting credentials and flaunting the finesse that underpins their longevity. During a thirteen-year tenure, the Brooklyn-based outfit have gravitated between periods of pure neo-psychedelic pomp and intermittent radio-friendly melodicism in a mercurial trend shared with contemporaries such as MGMT. However, where other alternative-inclined acts from the mid to late noughties have faded, as a series of footnotes into the fickle pages of music history, Yeasayer betray an undimmed vitality and lustre which has garnered continued interest and airplay since their full-length debut.
For better or worse, it has less experimentation than previous efforts, leading to fewer standout moments but also none of the missteps that have popped up from time to time. It is a collection of hook-laden indie pop combining rock and electronic elements to create a music painting that is less abstract than previous efforts but just as beautiful. Each Yeasayer album has its own sound as the band constantly seeks new artistic expressions of its music.
