Yeasayer - "Ambling Alp" Secretly Canadian


Yeasayer is a pretty unknown band for me until yesterday,
they had a concert at Debaser, Medis in Stockholm.
I did Tokio Hotel on thursday and Yeasayer yesterday,
at first i was going to do Hotel as The Tune Of The Day...
but..uhm...I choosed Yeasayer :D

This band comes from Brooklyn, New York.
Started up in 2006, so its pretty new.

They play a kinda experimental psychedelic rock, pop
with a lot of synth but in a psychedelic way :)

I really liked the guys, very down to earth
a confident and happy bunch of guys.
They liked beer :)

In 2008, Yeasayer toured with MGMT and
Man Man and supported Beck.
The same year, a public a cappella concert,
"Take Away Show", was performed on the Paris metro.

Yeasayer put a lot of their harmonic tunes in their
voices lots of diffrent tones and they sound
very good as well.
They are three basic
players wich is
Chris Keating on lead vocals, keyboards
Anand Wilder on guitars, keyboards, backing vocals
Ira Wolf Tuton on bass guitar, backing vocals



Sometimes they have additional musicians
with them that can be:
Jason Trammell – drums (Was there)
Ahmed Gallab – timbales, electronic percussion (Not there)
Jerry Marotta – drums, Taos drums, percussion
(Mayby there, a bit unsure but I think so)
Kevin Bewersdorf – piano, synthesizers (Not there)
Stuart Bogie – horns, bass harmonica, Jew's harp
Stuart by the way was also in the band "Tv On The Radio"
that I did last year as a Tune of The Day.
Unfortunally he wasent with Yeasayer last night.
Steven Stetson – horns (Not there)

They are on their way to Oslo as I write.
Then after that,
March 8 at VEGA SMALL HALL in COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
March 9 at KNUST in HAMBURG, GERMANY
March 10 at POSTBAHNHOF in BERLIN, GERMANY
March 11 at 59/1 in MUNICH, GERMANY
March 12 at EXIL in ZURICH, SWITZERLAND
March 15 at TUNNEL in MILAN, ITALY
March 17 at CARACOL in MADRID, SPAIN
March 19 at LE TRABENDO in PARIS, FRANCE
March 20 at PARADISO in AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
after that they will go back to the US.



This tune comes from their latest album called "Odd Blood"
