[LISTEN] YEASAYER: ‘Fragrant World’

Yeasayer are set to drop their third LP Fragrant World next week, following 2010’s excellent Odd Blood. We’ve previously heard ‘Henrietta‘ and ‘Longevity‘, and now you can stream the entire album courtesy of NPR. After a few spins I’m enjoying this surprisingly consistent release — which delivers sprightly grooves, alien vocals, electronic wizardry, and swirly, foreboding atmosphere in spades — and the Brooklyn trio’s layered tracks always reward further exploration, so this will be on high rotation in the coming weeks.

Fragrant World is out August 21. Stream it below (via NPR).
