Tonight, one of my favorite bands to photograph, Yeasayer, will storm the stage of the 9:30 Club to a sold out crowd. Their music is worldly but accessible in the best of ways and I always feel so much brighter about life after one of their tracks from Odd Blood hits my ears. So what’s with the heavy videos, Yeasayer? I mean just take a look…
I mean, sure now every time I hear that drum line in “Ambling Alp” I picture a nefariously dressed mirror-faced man beating a snare to death while another gallops around on a pony… And I will never really be able to look at chinese food and/or Kristen Bell the same… plus who orgies on sand dunes??? I mean, what the fuck Yeasayer? You know just how to hit that extremely weird yet altogether approachable aspect of music AND art. I am forever your music video watching + tunes listening slave.
